my healing journey

They took it from me

They took my innocence, my trust for those who offer to teach me knew things

They took my link to my culture and my cultural heritage

They took my enjoyment of sex

They took my right of who to lose my virginity to

They took my ability to have normal relationships

They took my ability to form friendships

They took my ability to accept love

They took my happiness and replaced it with neverending grief and pain

They took my happy memories

They took my ability to cry

They took my grateful mornings

They took my afternoons

They’ve taken over my nights and my dreams

My appetite, my joy , my relaxation

Every waking moment

They’ve taken it and I don’t know how to get it back
