Thanks Mark. I am gathering up enough nerve to speak to my mom and dad about how my grandfather sexually abused me. Well said, "The ultimate price by saying nothing at all."

You are welcome. The whole concept of "being quiet is worst price" has been a difficult one for me to retain a grasp on, yet I believe it holds a lot of truth.

It's great to see how your poem reached out to another survivor and helped him deal with an issue of his own. And I agree with him: what a powerful verse:

Much love,
