I am studying abuse at Uni at the moment and i have never come across a poem like yours. Well done you. I was abused as well when 12 or there abouts and it sometimes takes over my life. I have two lovely, clever, caring children and they are what keeps me going and keeps me sane.

I agree with Anonymous below, Elaine. A lovely poem that gives a great deal of hope to survivors of abuse everywhere. So very well done!
