Poem – No Relationship Safe Enough ~ Lilly Hope Lucario


Poem – No Relationships Safe Enough

~ By Lilly Hope Lucario


Vulnerable and fragile

Unsafe and scared

Residing in emotions

My inner child endures

No-one safe enough

So she stays withdrawn

Fearful of being hurt

All her wounds still raw

Everyone will hurt her

She knows not to trust

Any hint of danger

She runs and hides

She has never been safe

My hurt little girl

Terrified of ‘big people’

Who make her cry

Vulnerable and needy

Always searching

For family to protect her

Searching painfully, futile

Always unsafe, scared

My abandoned little girl

Her wounds still open

Too many ‘bad people’

Hiding deep within me

Unable to feel secure

No relationship safe enough

Her fears and tears, endure.

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

  1. hi yr poem hits to the core. I hav a daily struggle n don’t understand myself or my feeling n thinking. I hav 2 children who I struggle with each day, im so far from being a mum but we help each other somehow. Yr poem is very real. That’s how yr inner child feels -what hope hav I with mine! I didn’t protect her

  2. This hits so many chords with me. Really tired of these unsafe feelings. Not understanding if it’s me that feels chronically unsafe, or if the people around me are truly unsafe. I want to be brave, but i really want to assume the fetal position too.
