It’s funny the things that you find in the rain . - Tori Amos
I remember as a small girl around 10 , one of those memories as a child one should not have . My mother said I liked the attention from him , if she only new what her evil heartless remark meant .
He took me into his shed you know he always smelled of pepper mint and scope I always knew it was coming as he raped me from behind . It hurt so bad I bit on a stick so no one could here me screaming as he raped me to his liking
I prayed each time asking to die . But I never did .
I remember when he told me no One else would love me or want me ever .
That branded me like a searing hot cattle iron and stayed with me my whole life .
I had the courage to tell my best friend at the time when I became a little older
My best friend was 4 years older and very tall and muscular played for the foot ball team .
One day at a church function we were all there my rapist , me and my best friend . My best friend walked up to my rapist and told him , I love her sir . And I know what you did .
I was so proud at this moment that someone stuck up for me . It was my proudest moment .
I never asked anyone to feel sorry for me I hate Hollywood’s me too hash tags
Bad things happen , it’s what we do in-spite of them that matters .
We need to love each other and help one another . You never know what anyone is going through .
Love is so important to give and to receive . You could save a life . Don’t forget that .
