You made me into a monster
with a life I was ashamed of.
A mind of dark secrets,
and never a real love.

No one could ever love me,
I was dirty and unworthy.
If men knew what I’d done
they would take advantage of me

Sleeping around to prove myself,
looking for love and affection.
Never thinking of consequence
I needed guidance and protection!

Bad things had to happen
and lengthen my punishment.
“Have her and forget her”,
definitely no commitment!

Now I need to change.
To open my eyes and see
that, with heart and mind anew,
I should love and cherish me.

What made you into the monster
who made me go so wild?
Could I have stopped it?
because I was just a child.

Artist's Description

When an abused child blames him/herself right into adulthood it can cause problems as he/she tries to understand what a ‘normal’ relationship should be. They can think of themselves as a ‘monster’ out of control, until she/he finally realises that they were not born a monster – he made them that way.

The wonderful Earthmonster created this superb image Dark Secrets to accompany Monster. Thanks EM – for everything !! XX
