    Concise.

    And it implies that childhood abuse leaves an imprint in to adulthood (which it does), as they struggle to grow beyond their pain. Sadly, some never grow past previous shortcomings.

    A well penned piece that got me thinking. Well done.

    Very very true Larry. Such a shame children have to go through this sort of thing especially as most of the abusers are family members or family friends.

    All the best, Em

    With just one drip you created an ocean; like ether said, it's extremely concise but focused, it definitely got me thinking. It's always a sad day when a child's innocence is lost.

    Larry,

    a sad piece reminds me of my friend died coz her mom accidentally hit her on the head resulting to head trauma. ...

    A well done that serves as a reminder
