Day Three 2019

Finding Myself

BY A VOICES CLIENT


Obliterated: that person I once called me
Emotionless, Numb, Empty
I lost my self-respect – what else can you expect
When abuse is done to you?
FEAR, OBLIGATION, GUILT
Are their weapons of brotherhood.
Where once a woman stood,
Stands a shadow who disappears in the sun
I’M NUMB, I’M ALMOST GONE
On the street, I am invisible
They don’t see me, but feel my shadow brush their side
I’m living a lie,
Waking every day hoping the pain will go away
I see no hope but wait in vain for me to be seen again.
As small as a mustard seed, I start to grow me.
She’s coming back again
She’s better than before, she now has the weapons of war
Her mind’s protected, her heart is mended, the line is drawn on the floor
There will be no more of that abusive stuff
I’m fully protected – that’s enough!!!!!!!!!!
