the trauma changed my life….

took away any sense of safety and security….

left me in a confusing haze….

but the hard part of healing is realizing….

I never felt safe….

My life was a distorted, helpless maze….

But now everything is different….

Because I’m not a victim….

And I’m not afraid…

Yes…

He hurt me….

Yes…

She failed to protect me….

And I still feel the pain running through me…

But I’m here….

And I’m alive….

There’s life left in me to live….

And this is my chance….

My opportunity to choose a life that I’ve never had….

To embrace my fears and vulnerability….

Heal the scars and let them go…

Leave behind a life and world I no longer need to know….

And every tiny step and choice….

Makes a world of difference….

In a life of love…
