    Claire found this poem online and related it to herself & would like to share:


    I'm a young girl who is kept from sight
    Constantly I'm crying in the middle of the night
    I'm a girl who lives in constant fear
    From the torment I have to endure and hear
    I'm a girl who lives in a world full of pain and shame
    As others say that I am hurt and alone as I was to blame
    I am a girl who is longing for acceptance and happiness
    But it seems like no one really understand and cares
    I am a girl who lives in a broken home
    Dad got divorce and moved far away
    I am a girl who still holds her painful childhood memories
    Mum used to beat, slap, and thrown me around every day
    I am a girl with a heart that is constantly breaking
    As mum is always tormenting me with her anger and painful words
    I am a broken girl who lost her innocence at a very young age
    From a mum who hurts me with her deliberate unreasonable rage
    I am a girl who is so lonely and sad
    As I have no friends and would hide myself away
    I'm a girl who was hurt from the people I used to trust
    My friends became the bullies who would beat and torment me each day
    I used to be the girl who would have tried to kill myself many times
    But I was saved by what was the most precious in my mind
    I used to be the girl who would bottle up all the emotions and fears
    But I could no longer hold on and broke down into tears
    I used to be the girl who hurt herself in every way possible
    From trying to cut to breaking bones
    I am now the girl who is still trying to hold on
    But on the inside I am on the verge of breakdown
    I am the girl who now smiles and makes eye contact
    But truthfully I still want to fade away
    I am the girl filled with the painful emotional and physical scars
    I am a girl who now wishes to run away
    I am now a girl who is trying to pray for everything to be better
    I am the girl who still cries each night
    I am the girl whose heart would be hard to fixed
    I am the girl who now does not easily trust
    I am now the girl who is still afraid
    I am now the girl who regrets having to live life this way
