1000 Tears

 I cried when I was born

Cold and solitary

No one to hold me

an unwanted child

I cried when I started walking

laying, sulking

there was only strangers to pick me up

I cried when I started talking

No one to listen

Noone to Care

I cried when he touched me

stealing my life

Robbing my innocence

I cried when I reached puberty

emotions raw

and everything is so huge

I cried when the other he touched me

Victim on my forehead

Soul crying for help

I cried when I fell in love for the first time

Could this be

that I am worthy

I cried when he left me

All alone

the only one whoever loved me

I cried when he left me

for someone else

abandoned again

sad again

I cried when I found me

Alone in a room I found me

I cried when my family died

abandoned again

In my own skin alone

I cried when I found love

and the damage from before

ran it away and I was the instrument of abandonment

I cried when I wrote this poem

at 36 knowing that I may have 63 more years

of nothing more than abandonment and tears
