Greatest Fear- A Poem

Greatest Fear

What has happened may be in the past

But are always here.

Memories made to forever last,

You are my greatest fear.

Dreams so peaceful take a turn

As your whiskered face appears.

Everything I built in life burns

You are my greatest fear.

A man walks by and you guys look alike,

My eyes full of tears.

I wanna scream but I close my eyes tight

You are my greatest fear.

And I want you to suffer like you made me

But God's words I still hear.

I am to forgive you, to be happy

But you are my greatest fear.

Maybe someday I will be able to

Move on to forgive, to be sincere

But right now I cannot forget you

You are my greatest fear.


Description

I am sure that many readers will have their own personal meaning for my poem Greatest Fear. My own personal reason behind writing this is my traumatic past as a sexual abuse survivor. As a child I was raised being abused by my own father. In some ways this has weakened me, in other ways I am a stronger person because of it.

My poem Greatest Fear is written about my father. I do someday want to be able to forgive him for I believe that I will be able to heal more if I did. Right now my opinion stays the same. I will not be able to forgive him. Someday in the future maybe.

Just know that if you were sexually abused, molested or raped that you are not alone and this doesn't make you the person who you are, which is a beautiful strong being. A survivor, not a victim.

Your poem really beautiful, and I like that you explained it. So many people will be able to relate and I'm very happy for you that you can discuss your personal life openly. By taking on your trauma, you give other people the strength to take on theirs. Voted up and beautiful.
