Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Poem – Inner Child’s Pain, Of Letting Go ~ Lilly Hope Lucario


My needy inner child

Desperately searches for

What she never had

Scared to her core


To face and know

You cannot be

What I need

For the child in me


‘Letting go’

Words I fear

You are in my heart

This pain severe


To let go

And lose these dreams

Of the search ending

Fragile, unheard screams


Gone from my life

Acid burning of tears

Abandonment again

Vulnerable, lost, fragile, fears


As I pry my little arms

From holding you so tight

I cry desperately

With all my child’s might


I will painfully grieve you

But in my heart’s sad song

You will always remain

Right, or wrong.

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
