The lights are out ......and the clouds sail past the window. I can't wait until naptime is done....I want to play with my friends and have some fun.
I see the other kids and they fall off one by one....like a set of dominoes set up by a magician. I'm laying on my back staring at the ceiling .....the teacher comes to my cot and asks me how I am feeling.
I said "I'm not sleepy", and he says "you should try". Close your eyes and you will fall asleep....if that doesn't work ....try counting sheep.
I still couldn't sleep and was just laying there....the other children were all sleep now....and he returned to me.
He kneeled next to my cot and said "maybe this will help you sleep". The teacher unzipped my pants and pulled out my little meat.
The feeling that I received felt really good and I did go to sleep.
This happened two more times during the week......I never told anyone ....because I didn't know. All I knew is that it made me feel good and I was able to sleep....he wasn't a teacher. This man was a creep.
He preyed on a child who didn't have a clue.
I was abused at home...so I never said anything about what happened at school. This was the place where I was allowed to have fun.....and wasn't confined to a room with a lock. Instead of watching television I was learning how to block.....but I was always accused of flopping.
I've seen stars many times...and I've never been to outer space. Those views came from several slaps across the face. The memories don't produce any smiles....they just gave me a blueprint on how not to raise a child.
I didn't have any toys....or a bed. I was a prisoner in a room that was blue......it's crazy that I like that hue. My room was ***** trapped with pieces of thread....to see if I had been out....and I was smart .....so he put on a latch....he became mad because I learned how to take it off and put it back.
He eventually installed a lock with a key. If you have to use the bathroom ....you have to ask me. Wow...you are my father not a sheriff or a deputy.
My father was on drugs and beat me like a stranger. I felt school was the lesser of the dangers. I'm a product of abuse and I sit here and write.
I'm realizing that Jesus helped me win the fight. How you may ask did he help me win? I'm learning about this word called Sin. When the teacher abused me .....he planted the seed of lust.
The enemy attacks when you are young. His job is to steal, **** and destroy. I was supposed to be dead....not helping other abused boys.
I now work with childeren who suffered from similar situations....and I say to them......allow school to be a vacation.....away from the abuse and cursing. I'm rebuilding their self esteem and allowing them to dream about a different life.
I tell them that my life was also filled with strife. The children with father's who seldom bother.....are the one's that break my heart. My dad wasn't around....but God provided me with another start.
I survived the tests and now I have a testimony.....To help those who are abused and lonely. I've been on that street and I have ran away on several occasions.....
I almost died...but that's another story. I'm just getting some answers about who I am......and why I make the decisions I do. I just shared a real deep piece of my life story with you.
The reason.....God told me to.
Help prevent child abuse.....save a few lives
This is one of the hardest and most personal poems I have written in a awhile. Thank you for reading and make a pledge to stop any abuse you may uncover.....
