Poems To Release The Past
Children Remember Kindness
Here goes a few of my thoughts from the past. I grew up in the 1950s and did have some wonderful times with my cousin who l would spend the summers. She helped me hang on to sanity. If you are one of those people who think kids do not remember things, you need to think again. Kids grow to adults and do remember everything. I saw a man in the store talk to a little boy like a dog and cussed him out, and it made me think, how abuse hurts kids.
From A Dream
It seems like waking from a dream,
Long and torturous,
I wanted to scream.
Shouts of joy for this day
Mind still sound, It's finally over I can say.
For this is the new day,
I didn't know it at the time,
The Lord was with me all the time.
Praying that God will hear,
In the end I know now,
There is love not fear
I love you Lord with all my heart
And if I should die,
May your love and I never part.
A little girl was lost so long ago,
I'm looking for her now
But I'm not sure anyone would want to know.
A child lost in the dark by time,
Searching for her desperately
Hoping not to lose my mind,
Her life was full of sadness she didn't know where to go.
I see a child's dark brown eyes,
A tear running down a dirty face
This child you see was hurt a long time ago.
I must find her now and tell her its time to let go.
Nervously, I start to cry
I ask her to come to me,
She runs by quickly, too fast for me
She really does not know me very well
I'm taking it slowly as she does not trust
Now only time will tell.
Right from Wrong
I think parents know right from wrong most of the time. I think some just abuse their kids anyway. It kind of makes a person sick to think of this parent. It takes kids along time to overcome a bad start in life, but they can if they really want it bad enough. There will come the time where you have to let the abusive past go for good and make your own new life. You must remember you do not live in that house anymore, you are safe and have your own home and your rules.
Into the future
No looking back
Forgetting the past
Trying to stay on track.
Old memories always pushing and fighting,
Trying to get in
Asking God to help me forget them so.
I can get through.
One day at a time
Keep this in Mind Stay in line.
I try to tell kids not to waste time on the past do not waste your time on these people that did not have your best interest at heart. Do not use drugs and alcohol to numb the pain face it and let it go. In the 1950 and 1960s you did not talk about any kind of abuse in the family, no matter what kind.
