 childhood abuse (my story using rhyme)


You can't choose your family,
but you can choose your friend,
But I am bad at that also,
So the vicious circle never ends.

My family are very selfish,
especially my sister and my brother.
But lucky enough for me I still have my daughter and my mother.

After having a stroke just over a year ago,
 I am trying to rebuild my life,
But in their eyes I can't do wrong for doing right.

It makes me so frustrated I am doing the best I can,
to make life normal for my daughter so  I can be a normal mum.
