I remember where I was A fog of anger and sadness Unable to speak about it my wounds gaping and bleeding Lost in my own voice 30 years of tears and broken dreams Bullies, abusers, and sex offenders Those who hide in your mind and Break you from the inside, you try To keep your soul from escaping but it’s Getting harder Then one night the great spirit taps You on the shoulder. She whispers to You, “raise your head” she says. And you see her for the first time. The sound of her voice calms your beating heart. She holds your hand and just like that Your healing begins. Your lovemaking chases the demons away, she fills your heart till it overflows. Her wisdom intertwines with yours, she leaves you with gifts that last a lifetime. I know where I am, my scars have healed and my heart is full. I’m stronger, the toxic life is but a memory and you greet each day with a smile. Nothing can hurt you, she taught you that and even though your paths diverged. She’s still apart of you.
