Alone Poem

Hell And Back

I have been through hell and back. I tried to explain what I've been through in this poem. It's about stuff that no teenager really wants to go through.

My Life

© Carrie Hall
I'm lost and confused,
miss-treated and miss-used,
Raped and abused,
Unloved and refused.
I was always being excused,
I started doing drugs,
Dating some thugs.
I was being a tease,
and getting pleased.
I love that life
now I'm stuck,
in this rock.
restrained from the one I love.
screaming inside my mind,
even though everyone thinks I'm fine.
crying myself to sleep every night,
wishing the next day my sister might be in sight.
I was dropped in this town,
to never be found.
I was beaten
I was raped
I was unloved
I was refused
and most of all I was confused.

    Brilliant. This story represents a lot of young girls on a journey they would rather not have and this highlights the dangers of not talking to people

    Yes, this story has touched me. I can relate to this girl. I feel the same way about my life...being to Hell and back to Hell and back...!I wish it can end. Yes, there is a lot of lessons you learn from life, but I just wish the Hell can stop. I wanna see purpose in all I went through. I realize I am not the only one. Take courage...someday daybreak will come.

    I know how you feel, I was abused in many ways by my father, my step-mother and even my own brothers. I was left by my mom at three years old and my father made us loose contact. he cheated me throughout my life, he's still in love with his wife, and I've been through hell and back through my whole life. I'm only fourteen I'm practically living on my own. I now live with my mother. she hurts me to. I've been waiting my whole life to leave and get out of this nightmare, but I guess it will never end. I know how you feel, maybe even worse.

    I feel sorry for you. I can't say I know how you feel- every story is different. But the consolation that you're not alone may help. I ''fell in love'' with a 12 year old when I was only 7. He always made me think that touching me and things was okay...I never realized until I was about 12 that I was molested...And my parents just found out this year. I'm sorry this happened to you. Someday, we will find our peace. Luckily, my band teacher was there for me. Admittedly, a weird connection, but he's really nice ^^) You did really good on this poem! A++!

    You may not know me, but I just want you to know that god loves you and you're never alone.

    Well I have been through this but I do have a friend whose family treats her like a slave. She came out and stayed with me through spring break and she told me that she felt so free when she was with me she even said she wanted to move in with me. She said, "I really got to get away from that house they are pushing me too hard and I don't know what to do." I told her when she turns 17 she and I will move in together. Her face lit up with a huge smile.

    For seven years or more I lived with abuse I still haven't completely dealt with, I'm a guy but still have at least a cursory understanding of how she feels, my father to this day has continually caused me issues, the only blessing I feel was given to me is that I live in a "broken home" my parents haven't been together since I was 2 years old, that's been 22 years now. I was always made to feel like less of a person if I didn't do things the way my dad wanted me to, my confusion has only recently been brought to light by the way my dad has treated me.
