The unwelcome love in my life came from my own dad and from my friend's friends. My dad raped me from the time I was 6 years old until I was 13.
I let it continue because I didn't know what to do. I finally talked to someone I care about a lot and he made me feel good about myself and he made me feel pretty, without doing anything to me. I read a poem that was like my situation, it was called RAPE?*!# by Jamie Cintron.
I told on my dad for raping me, but the rest of the boys didn't stop. My dad is locked up now and the boys are still out, doing the same to others girls.
Nothing different has really happened since the abuse stopped. I moved away, but only 30 miles away. They don't know where to find me and I'm not going to let them.
I miss my Dad more than anything, but he never should have raped me. But my life is better sorta'.
Don't let anyone take control over you in a sexual way, not even your family members. Who cares if they say the right things and say you are so pretty when no one else does- you could end up pregnant without a father for the baby 'cause Lord knows they won't help you. You could also get HIV or AIDS. So be tough and say NO!
