The Stars Are Bright

My name is Tammy. I am a Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse.

You came into my life when I was a little girl. I was outgoing and full of life!

You split my personality, but didn’t break my spirit.

I WAS JUST 6 YEARS OLD!

You told me, FOCUS little one!

The Stars are Bright!

You told me, to CLOSE my eyes

You told me; IT would not hurt!

You told me; The STARS are SHINING through the cracks.

FOCUS Little one!

The Stars are Bright.

I CAN’T BREATHE!

IT REALLY HURTS!

The Tears are Flowing!

The Body is SHAKING!

OH, MY PRETTY DRESS IS RUINED!

You told me, FOCUS Little one!

The Stars are Bright!

POINT the CHIN to the SKY.

KEEP your EYES CLOSED

DON’T SPEAK!

You told me; this is OUR SECRET.

You told me; WE are just PLAYING.

You told me; NEVER to TELL.

You told me; IT’S MY FAULT.

I am NOT that LITTLE GIRL anymore.

I am STRONG!

I am COURAGEOUS!

I am BRAVE!

It Was MY VOICE that told YOUR SECRET.
