Sometimes my life has no meaning or purpose in this world
My life has turned back on me twisted and curled
I had a frightening childhood experience that changed my life forever
To struggle through my life has been at times a harrowing endeavour
As my life now draws to a close I look back to the rounded person I am now
How could this life and person have been hidden for so long; how!
Child abuse has a legacy of lives filled with pain and disconnected people
Anger, pain, and sadness in my case all this turned in on myself
Forever to dwell on a lonely dark shelf
