Emotional Scars
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Molested as a child
by someone who I thought was meek and mild.
Who I thought was my protector,

was a preditor

Now I don't trust and making love is just sex yuck!
he took my trust away my fun of life.

When you abuse. your victim loses their life.

Sorry this happened

Hey Barb,

One thing I can say about the past, is that it can definitely make us stronger.

Your past may have forged you, but never look back, for you are not going that way. Be Well.
