My poetry, like how I always am, is very raw, very real, very honest, very emotional, from my heart and soul.
Whenever I share it, I feel vulnerable, it doesn’t really feel safe, due to the deeply personal depth to it.
But, in sharing it, it strengthens me, whilst letting others know they are now alone, and someone understand the devastation of severe prolonged abuse, of different kinds.
My poetry and writing, also puts into words, what many can’t.
I praise God, for creating me someone able to do this.

How inspiring and what strength you must have to share your personal abuse with us. Thank you so much!
Bravo bravo encore encore ~<3~ just beautifully the way u write the words from my heart ~<3~
Wow. Thank you for using what you have been made to endure to help others. You are like the sun shining through the clouds.
Ugh. I am so very very very sorry. Very. There is true evil in our world and many of us know that and looked it in the face. I am so sorry you went thru this. Hugs and comfort to you.
I am so sorry for what has happened to you. Fear and isolation like that is the worst combination of feelings. Please know I am praying for your continued healing. Thank you again for uplifting others around you.
Your courage in sharing this poem humbles me. And yes i dont feel so alone. I feel understood. You give me hope. One day i might also find the courage to share my story. Thankyou so much.
That took a lot of courage to post that, but probably even more just to write it. It's good that you're able to release your emotions like this. I've been "blocked up," myself when it comes to writing, and I've written several poems, myself. Of course, my emotions also feel "blocked up," right now. Anyway, so sorry for what you had to endure. Keeping you in my prayers for healing.
This sounds like something I could have wrote – esp the glass part. Watching others live their lives through the glass.
You are so brave and I admire your courage and example of sharing to show u care. I felt your pain and I am truly sorry that happened to you. I'm glad you're ok now.
Two years ago I was watching a Dr. Phil show and half way thru it I realized I had been through the same abuse. I had subconsciously blocked it out for nearly 28 years. I still do and no one knows of it. You are very brave! I love your page and how it inspires me….thank you
I've never went through anything like this but it choked me up reading it.
