I am ANGRY for you.
I am ANGRY that because some
"Well meaning" moron lied,
You were hurt.
I am ANGRY at myself for you.
You trust me to protect you from
I was unable to protect you.
I am so sorry.
I am sorry I was so afraid of "THEM",
When you needed me to be strong for you.
"THEY" threatened to take you from me,
And that threat shattered my heart.
I was too frightened of loosing you to a lie
To protect you from it.
I don't know how to make things better again,
And I'm sorry for that too.
I want to hold you in my arms forever
And protect you from the world.
There are so many of "THEM" in the world,
And only one of me.
"THOSE" who will never understand you.
"THOSE" who will always look down on you.
"THOSE" who will hurt you
Or unintentionally cause you harm.
I want to keep you in a rose tinted bubble,
So you do not have to see the ugliness in the world,
And so "THEY" can never touch you.
But you have seen the ugliness.
And I was helpless to stop "THEM".
I was unable to protect you,
And I'm sorry.

I'm glad I could brighten up your day a little. And I REALLY like this poem.

I'm sorry for the stuff happening with your daughter...I wish people would keep to themselves, find something better to do than lie about the vulnerable people in this world.
