All I Can Remember

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

By Jade Chance, Virginia State University

I can’t remember

To this day

Who he was,

Why he touched me

Why he abused me

All I know is

I wasn’t happy

I was scared

I thought he loved me

The way he hugged me

Everything seemed okay

But he’d get angry

When things didn’t go his way

All I can remember is being

Adored then,


Little did I know

It was abuse

It was too late

So, what could I say

My story wouldn’t add up

Because I can’t remember his face

To this day.
