the day a priest touched me
bear

bless me father for i have sinned.

this time it was different
 2
i was more comfortable in
 3
a confession than i have ever been.
 4
 
 
he broke down my guard,
 5
he broke ME down.
 6
 
 
it all caused me to cry
 7
i think he wanted me to,
 8
i felt better after i did.
 9
 
 
the day a priest touched me
 10
i realized that i am a better
 11
person then i had ever thought.
 12
 
 
he called me a good kid
 13
and said it like he meant it.

thanks

this goes two ways, either way really gets it. a priest who actually cares about their friends, their children, or a priest that molested and got away with it, twisting the kid's thought into believing it was something good; which of course has reference to some really bad scandals.

nice work.

although this is your experience, the poem is sub par.
