I will use my voice,
And keep my candle lit.
For those who are still suffering,
But can not yet admit.
I ain't no hero i don't want to be a star,
My words are for the people who don't know who they are.
The pain and hurt you suffer in a world so cold and bare,
Speak little children i will listen cos' i care.
My name is Natalie Rawlings i am 24 years old. My poetry is all about my life as a child who suffered and also as a young adult who had to deal with the effects of childhood abuse.
I don't think i need to write much more than that here as i believe my poetry tells all you need to know about me and my past.
I am a survivor not a victim, my poetry is here for one thing only and that's just in hope it may help others realize that "WE ALL HAVE A VOICE" :-)
If just one of my poems are as useful to someone else as they have been to me through out the years then that's what makes me happy. If I've come through the other side of childhood abuse then there is absolutely no reason why others cant do the same.
Thanks for taking your time to read my stuff all my love Natalie Rawlings A.K.A NatRaw xxx
