This is a good description of being in pain with the feeling of a ruined self esteem. People in that situation has gone through that. For anyone who reads this, there is hope and encouragement for them to talk to someone. R56ma3:Susan C.

Yes I do understand, and I am sorry for your pain too. Your win in the contest shows that this issue is far too prevalent in our society - people connected with your poem because it has happened to them or they know someone to whom it has happened, or they do it themselves. Shame!
Promises like these, spoken in fear, will sometimes come out many years later, unfortunately far too late as much damage will already have been done.

Hi there,

I can see why this one won. It's very direct and lingers with that disturbing ring of truth. A lot said in only two lines.

All the best

Those two lines are painful to read. That a person must promise to keep quiet is dreadful, to do it to save yourself, that is one promise that can be justifiably broken. I'm hoping that is what you did. I can see why you won this contest, it's impossible not to have done. Well done, and congratulations. :)) Sandra xx

Between your title, the description and the ribbon, you told a novel's worth of information that unless it happened to you, you just don't understand.
But I do understand and never told anyone until many years later, after his own daughter committed suicide because it had also happened to her.
He was my uncle and godfather and I hated him, but I hated my aunt more because she knew about it and didn't turn him in.
I stayed over night at my cousin's house when I was 7, and when we were all sleeping, he entered the room and whispered that he had something to tell me, but lets go have a snack first. Of course our little secret that would make everyone mad at me, if they knew, was worse than death to a little girls who just wanted to be loved and accepted.......
I'm sorry Haylee, but seeing that ribbon and your description and title just took me back there, and now with a pit in my stomach!
If you feel comfortable with me, you can sure talk to me anytime about how and who, but that is up to you. With Loving thoughts of you my dear!! Debi
I am going to share a little poem I wrote years ago about it, but I will message it to you later. Good for you for a bravery that says a lot about you!

A huge CONGRATULATIONS on your well-deserved win. You took the straightforward approach to the topic--the best approach, since there's nothing flowery or sweet about being sexually molested!

Very honest and brave thing to use your writing to reach out to another's hurt. Especially a hurt so specific and deep. Thank you for the message and heart behind this piece.

Thank you so much for this wonderful poem! You have done such a great job with this contest entry, and so I congratulate you on it! I am beginning to think of the song from Dear Evan Hansen, the musical? I think, "You Will Be Found" is the song that this poem reminded me of. Have you heard it? It is really good! Thank you again :)

A powerful message in your notes and your two-line poem, Haylee, and the starkness of the blue ribbon on budding branches has much impact. Congrats on the win, and thanks for getting the message out there.
cheers.
