Poem – “Contradiction” ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

Within her layered
Complex mind
Of this odd
Complex woman

This quirky, kooky
Unusual girl

Lies deep
Hard to
Decipher, fathom

Life wisdom deep
Exposed, endured
10 lifetimes
Of painful experiences

Equipping her
Deeply knowing
Behind those
Sad brown eyes

Such courage
Inner strength
To survive
The un-survivable

But fragile
Unsafe, scared
Young girl
Lonely within

She’s both
Strong, wise old woman
Competing with
Vulnerable, fragile child

Processing deeply complex
Thoughts in her mind
Her legs pushing forward
On the old swing

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
