The children of the sun

Hi,

This song always makes me think its about abused children.

We’re coming from far
Over oceans of time
We’re coming from places we once left behind
We’re looking for love
In the heart of every man
We’re looking for reasons we’ll all understand

Chorus
We are (we are)
In need (in need)
We want (we want)
A place for everyone
We shine (we shine)
Through love (through love)
We are (we are)
The children of the sun

We follow our dreams
We’ll never stop
We follow our hopes
And we’ll never give up
Until we have found
The warmth of the sun
Untill we are born

Chorus
We are
In need
We want
A place for everyone
We shine
Through love
We are
For ever on the run

We are
In need
We want
A place for everyone
We shine
Through love
We are
The children of the sun

We’re coming from far
Over oceans of time
We’re coming from places we once left behind
We’re looking for love
In the heart of every man
We’re looking for reasons we’ll all understand

We follow our dreams
We’ll never stop
We follow our hopes
And we never give up
Until we have found
The warmth of the sun
Untill we are born

The children of The sun

(We shine Through love)

Am I the only one?
I do feel something beautiful can come out of this song. Awareness.. understanding.
Not just for the kids who are being abused right now but for the survivors as well. Could be someone who has just turned 18 and is struggling to deal with everything. But just was well someone who is 53 and is dealing/struggling with what happened.

Might be triggering!

I’m going to be honest, some are so damaged, and have none to little help, and they wont follow their dreams, they don’t believe in dreams.
When I was 13, I had a ‘dream’. I guess it was a dream. My dad always made sure I knew the importance of money. So I wanted to become a porn star. If it was up to me, I would have been when I was 13, but you had to be 18. So I thought; ‘ok, I’m going to be a porn star, I know how to do everything, I know how to get through it + I will make a lot of money’. Then I found out porn stars (the woman at least) have to be pretty. So that went out of the window. But then I thought of a whore. Yep, I wanted to be a whore, they earn a lot as well and don’t have to be pretty. So I thought I was able to pull that of. Doing the only thing I can do right, at least a little, pleasing a man.
I truly believed, 100%, that was my future job. The only thing I would be able to do. So yeah, it was my dream.
Nobody told me I had other options, to me there were no other options.
Looking back on that now, I think it’s a little sad. I truly believed, I was born for other mans pleasure’s. I am a person, but I don’t have rights, I have to please, I have to obey and be thankful that I can do that at least. No feelings whatsoever, that’s my job, that’s why I was born, that’s my mission in life.

I do think its weird a 13-year-old can think like that. It’s not okay to think like that. There’s nothing wrong with being a whore or a porn star, but it is, when you would be doing it for the same reasons I would have.
We have to help the children, or the adults who still believe like that. Because it is NOT true. EVERYONE has the right to exist, everyone has the right to say NO when it does not feel right, no matter who is crossing your boundaries. Everyone is a person, everyone has feelings and it is okay to express those feelings. Because you are worthy of that. You deserve to be happy and to be loved for the right reasons. You aren’t an object or someone’s possession. You are in control of yourself, don’t let anyone else control you/your life.

We will follow our hopes, and never give up.

I believe in all of you. I wont give up on us.

xoxo

  1. Before I’ll read any further: You’re not the only one. I used to listen to this song a lot. I had it on a casette =P (Man, that makes me feel OLD!), anyways… I’m going to read the rest of your blog now. Funny we use to think very alike sometimes!

  2. Well, this post almost brought tears to my eyes. I can so totally relate to what you were writing; especially the dream thing. I think lots of us survivors can, sadly enough.
    I think it’s really good you want people to be aware of this. People have to be, because things like this have to stop.

    Do you know project unbreakable? It’s a really painful way of making people aware. A female photographer made photo’s of victims of abuse with quotes of their perpetrators. I have friends who’ve seen the pictures and were mind blown.
    I have to say, for you, me, us, it’s not good to see them. It hurts to much (I know, because I have seen them, but I think you’d better not).
    Why I’m bringing this up is, because I believe in this project so much. I think the only way to make people more aware is to have them feel the hurt a little (as much as possible). That’s what the project does.

    Well,
    I don’t know what to say more. I just feel so sad you had to feel this way, Bri. I feel like I want to hold you and comfort you.
    You’re such a worthy person!

    Take good care,
    Hugs

    • Hi sweety,
      I reallly feel like giving you a hug as well, it pains me to read you went through the same thoughts (although deep down I knew). I’m so sorry for that.
      I found out about Project Unbreakable thanks to one of your blogposts. It is triggering, but I think its such a good project. It brings tears to my eyes, seeing those pictures and reading what those awfull people have said to them.
      I totally agree on what youre saying about the awareness. It so difficult to be open about this, and telling other people what you truly thought and felt (especially with your face on the photo), but I guess its necessary. And most important of all, we dont have to feel ashamed. Because we have nothing to be ashamed of.
      You are just as worthy sweety!
      Take good care as well!!
      Hugs

  3. Hi dear =)
    I’m sorry I put you through seeing the pictures of project Unbreakable. I hope you managed to handle the possible triggering content.

    It almost brought tears to my eyes also, seeing the people behind the stories; imagining what they’ve been through. For us that’s really hard, but for others it’s like the slap in the face they need to develop awareness.

    I truly believe in this project. I think I’ll go look for donation possibilities =) Also I feel like I want to tell my story the same way,(Hear me wanting to crawl out of the dark shadows of my life and the depths of shame=)) but it keeps kind of scary. Maybe it’s something to think about in the future.

    I like the trend in your last blogposts. Looks like you’re making good progress to me! I’m proud of you.

    Take good care,
    And the hug was most welcome! =D

    • Hey,
      You didn’t put me through anything sweety, you just put the url in your blog and set a trigger warning with it, so it was my choice to go look at it. However, I’m glad I did, because I feel less alone, ofcourse it hurts me to see others going through the same things I went, but thats just a fact. They shouldn’t be ignored for that, just because its painful to know.
      I can handle it (for people being in the same situation I can understand its too painful to look at, because of the memories), so I’m going to try and help them by tweeting about the project and see what I can do.

      Thanks for you big compliment!!!!! 🙂 Made me smile from ear to ear, I feel like i’m making good progress aswell (to be honest 😛 ) and I feel confident about myself and my situation 🙂 i know I have a lot to work through, but I’m trusting on Brandon, he told me I am strong enough to get through this and I believe him. I think so too.
      A big part of me believing is Abraham, therapy and blogging here (+talking to you), it really helps me. You have faith in me and maybe that was the last little push in the back for me to believe. So thank you so much for that!
      Big hug!

  4. I don’t have faith in you, because of something of me. I have faith in you, because of something in you! I saw your spirit. Brandon is right. I’m happy you feel this way, THAT made me smile! =)

    Lots of hugs,
    you deserve all of them

  5. I love this 🙂
    It made me cry because of some of the emotions that it brought up but it was beautifully put 🙂
    You are a strong person and can do anything that you put your mind to 🙂
    We’re not broken, just bent.
    And we are in control of our own bodies and our own lives. Nobody has the right to take that away from anyone!
    Stay strong 🙂
    P.S. You are a beautiful person, don’t let anybody, even yourself, tell you otherwise 🙂

    • Ah, I’m glad you liked it. Thanks for your compliments, if I was able to, I’d blush! 😉
      I totally agree on you with ‘we’re not broken, just bent’ because I feel the same way 🙂
      Take care!
