Dear Man,

I’d like to personally congratulate you in your endeavors. There are very few as daring as I know you to be. Even less of that number are willing to do what you so professionally started. I’d like to personally congratulate you in your success. You have committed an atrocity that few would dream of ever performing.

You have stolen my innocence.

You have taken away the slim chance I had of blending in. Once upon a time, I would have smiled and laughed at the antics of my friends. After what you did to me, I could not force myself to. Back then, it was a broken smile. The laughter was fake. I did not mean it. Never.

But then I must thank you. Without what happened between us, I would not know myself as well as I do now. I would have never learned how courageous I can be. I would have never discovered that I do, indeed, have a place in life. I would have never learned just how many talents I truly possess.

I want you to know how much I hated you– and how much I still hate you. I want you to know that even if I may forgive you, I cannot and will not forget what occured between us. I want you to know that you should have listened to me when I begged you to leave me alone. I want you to know that someday, you’re going to pay for everything you did to me. You’re going to face judgement for everything you did to my family. MY family. Not yours. Remember that.

Good things come to those who wait.

Yours sincerely,
Megan
