 childhood abuse (my story using rhyme)

If i can do it (so can you)

If i can do it so can you,
Survive a childhood of abuse.
To stand and be counted head up high,
Turn those frowns into smiles.

It takes so long to build from my past,
I rise and i fall but i never look back.
I must move forward i must see hope,
If in this life i wish to cope.

You might think I'm nuts,
When you read some of my writes.
But i use my story in hope,
That others can see light.

Ive been through so much,
But i am determined to brave it.
To see justice served,
And i sure will make it.
