I've never been happier in my life
yet sometimes at night
I wake up crying
the pain of the past still
haunts me
still lurks in the shadows
It's been years
since I saw my fathers face
since I even heard his voice
I thought I was over that
that I had finally let go
but the memories flood my dreams
and over and over I hear his words
of how he can not love me
unless I change myself to suit him
but I couldnt then
and I sure as hell wont now
but I long for that relationship
that I was denied most of my life
and now that I have a husband
and a want to start a family with him
all I can do is long
and wonder if I will be like him
will I destroy my children
like he once destroyed me?
the voice inside me
tells me I am nothing like him
and I pray everyday to God
my true and loving Father
that He will protect me from myself
and help me to learn that I am not him
that I am stronger than that
my love for my husband is stronger than that
and God's love for me is stronger
than anything.

As you start your own family, you will realize that you had nothing to be scared about.  Put your family in the hands of the Lord...remember that "A family that prays together, stays together"

No indeed you aren't like him.  Your tenderness shows, and once you hold those little mites, you'll truly know how to love.  Joye

Your beauty lies within; you must believe in
yourself, take one day at a time, and your
children will truly be a gift from God.  You
show much compassion and the desire to be a
good mother.  Put your faith in God and you
will succeed!  Thanks for sharing such a touching poem!
