My Uncertainty

My heart is filled with darkness and uncertainty,
never could I imagine that this would be-me.
I was a happy child, full of love and happiness,
trying to suppress the torture I had experienced.
Asking myself, "why did I have to endure this?"
I can vaguely remember the things that they did
molesting a little girl and getting some
neighborhood kids in on the gig.
Each time it happened, I was scared and ashamed
wanting to tell my parents but I was afraid.
Most times, they acted like a team,
passing me around like an object with no means.
No apologies, later in life,
Now all grown- up with
strife in their life.
God has a plan this I know,
You reap what you sow that
is inevitable.
