Their trespass on the boundaries of my


I know the silent tears of shame,

Trying to hide from guilt which isn't mine to


I know the rage - like acid etched

Onto my soul - leaving jagged scars in its


I know the grief of being robbed,

The anguished loss of that which cannot be



I know the still, small voice of hope;

It echoes as I add my own and say,

"Me, too."
