Life is so unfair sometimes, I feel so sad for you and what you have been through is so terrible , your poem made me cry as I read it. I too know how you feel. Carry on the road that takes you to where you have to be.

Echo, Let the strength of the Lord carry you, let him shelter you from pain, give to him your heart and soul and with him walk in the shadows of his love. Give unto him your past pain and arise each day knowing you are a gift of beauty with a purpose on this earth, then give to God your hand for him to guide you safely through each day.

Echo...one great big hug for you, I know how hard life can be sometimes...I applaud you for your courage and determination. It's hard enough to deal with these things, but to write about them and share them with others takes true courage...God bless you.

First__Knight...Thank you for your kind words, and I know that God is with me and walks with me through all of this, and that is another reason I am still alive today!

Sven...Yes, I know that I have found a home here with Passions and shelter in the arms of God.  Thank you for your kind and caring words!

whiskey...Yes, I know that life is unfair (most the time it is then it isnt though...for me at least).  But I will continue to try to carry on this road (but no promises)!  Thank you!

Lost Dreamer...Thank you, and I have tried to do this, but it is easier said then done!  Thank you for the words of wisdom!

Ruth...Thank you for the hugs!  Yes, writing and sharing stuff like this has been VERY hard for me, because as I said, I hide everything inside of me, and that is where I have made many of the mistakes!

Thank you all!  You words and hugs and care means so very much!

Simply surviving all you have been through is evidence of your great strength and courage, my friend. Never doubt that you have either, for you've shown it, and there is no doubt in my mind that there is a reason you possess these attributes. Your words can help others to come through their hard times...so I thank you for sharing your soul and for being so generous with something so difficult.
A magnificent job on the poem, Echo. It is brilliant.      (((Hugs)))

Echo, What happened to you is truly a tragedy and since you know Christ you know He was with you through each tragedy. God's angels protected you those times for none of those men ended your life. And with that thought you can trust He will continue to look after you. Sometimes we have to look at what didn't happen to see God. Know that it is in his will to have you safe and happy for you are His child. Beautifully written and I admire your courage.

Julie...I know Christ was with me through each and every thing I have been through.  I know He protected me, but what I don't get is why it was allowed to happen (to me and everyone else too).  

Georgia...Thanks, and I wont don't worry!

Echo...this was so hard to read because I knew that I was seeing a glimpse of hell that you managed to live thru and you have a found a way to vent all the hatred and pain thru your writing. Keep writing and writing and writing some more. You are a beautiful person and anytime you need to talk just email me. You are strong and courageous... lots of hugs ((((((((((hugs)))))))))

W.C.....Thank you, and you are right, it has been a hell...

As much as I wish none of this had happened (plus many other things in my life)  I think, actually I know, that it has helped make me who I am today.  Whether I like that person or not, it is not for me to decide, God loves me and that is all that matters.  I just wish that I could be happy, get over what has happened is too hard, and I probably never will, but I have forgiven each person, and although I will never forget what has happened because of the mental scars as well as the physical, I know that I can probably help someone else who has gone through similar situations.  Maybe not jsut with rape, but with other things because God knows, I have been through far many other things. But first I know I am going to haev to find a way to live with it and get on with my life (that I have tried to end way too many times).  I guess I should have learned by now that if I was meant to die I would have been already dead.  I just wanted to thank everyone here in Passions for the love, strength, support, care, and everything else as well...because you all have helped me continue on, and I can never thank you all enough for that!

well, I'm certainly glad your giving out the key - I would rather you pour it all out than keep it inside.  I cannot take away any of the pain, this I know.  But I can offer you a shoulder and an ear anytime you need one my friend.  Please feel free to call on me any time.

Thank you Michael...and although I have given out the key, beware, sometimes I may lock the chain...but even with the chain on, the door is not refrained from opening a little =o)   You've been a great friend, thank you!!

I can tell you from personal experience that you can only go so far on your own. If you do not get counseling, some event, later in life could have you on your knees.
Do keep writing, it is very therapeutic and can help to heal the child within. That is where you should begin the journey because I'd guess that's where it hurts the most.
I would ask if you have a source of "support", a family member or close friend with which to share the whispers and screams but, I can see that you have many.
Remember to look up as you walk lifes path or you will miss the beauty that lies before you.
God bless you.

oh sweetie...i don't know whether any words are adequate to describe the sorrow i felt reading this poem - you have been through so much and my heart goes out to you.  You are truly a beautiful person and i know God has got plans for you, lean on him for the strength you need to go through each day, he will never let you down.  Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers...God bless you and definately keep writing!!!

What did I do?
What did I say?
To make you hurt me in this way,
You used the trust I had in you,
To do the things you wanted to do,
The confusion you caused is tearing me apart,
The hurt you caused is breaking my heart,
Why did you do what you did?
YOU were authority,
I was a kid,
You pushed your desires inside of me,
This was a time I wished to be free,
Free of you and the things you did,
Free to live and be a kid,
Free to scream and free to cry,
Free to look you in the eye,
And make you see what you have done,
See the pain in my heart,
See my blood run.

Echo, this poem is excellent but so very sad (((((((Hugg))))))) I can relate to a lot of what you have written and I am so, so sorry that you have had to endure such awful things. The path is not easy and I think that it is a very long one, I keep searching for the light at the end of the tunnel but it never seems to shine.......I know in time it will though I have no idea when. Sometimes it doesn't seem that way though - it often feels like everything is wrong. Sometimes it is good to talk to people who can understand where you're coming from, do you have someone that you can talk to? If you don't have someone like that please feel free to email me anytime OK. I have ICQ also, so feel free to ICQ me if you like.

A word of advice.......be kind to yourself, do things that you like to do, don't set time limits and try to let your feelings out, by talking or writing or drawing or exercising ( whatever makes you feel good) when you can feel the pressure inside building up to exploding point DON'T bottle things up. Sorry this reply is so lengthy. Be kind to yourself.

OK Echo, I will wait for your email. Do you have my email address? I also have ICQ - if you have it and want my number just let me know OK. Be kind to yourself.

Time heals but the scar remains, oh it does!
Echo, I am with you all the way, and I do believe that Jesus is the source for everything, for He is the shepherd, and He heals!
Keep your faith steadfast, hang on and continue to pray, as we do for you.

from India with love
