Strong Enough to Break

In finding my voice I am trying to be silenced for the sake of the people that took away my voice so many years ago.This time I will be silenced no more. I spoke of my dirty secrets and I am free of there cross. I stand here now, scared as hell showing you my scars, but I know I am not alone. I am a product of abuse. I know the feeling of a fist and the betrayl of sexual assault. I have been fondled by familiar hands and I have unleashed my rage on wonderful souls who did me no wrong. I will let my abusers alone now and only speak there names in prayer, but my voice will not be silenced! My generation and the generations at my heels need to stand up and be heard. It is up to me, up to us to break this cycle. I am only one voice, but I will speak for us all till you find the strength to let your own voice be heard. For the sake of our own children, our nieces and nephews or the child down the street. We have to show them it's wrong to abuse or be abused. The people we put in office to protect us are turning a blind eye, so it is up to us to STOP being someones dirty little secret and prevent another poor soul from feeling our pain. Let's fight together and together our voice will be heard. Feel free to share your story or please just share it with someone. Don't suffer in silence. Ask questions when you see something unusual or seeing someone act out. Keep in mind that there was a reason the girl at your school was being a maneater or the bully was torturing kids smaller than him just becasue they could. Your experience could save another, you never know...
