Poem ~ Stay Quiet, Stay Silent

~ Lilly Hope Lucario

.

Maybe it is me

Who is insane

Maybe abuse

Is really okay

.

I should accept

It is a part of life

.

Stay quiet, stay silent

.

Maybe, I deserve it

After all

Maybe, they are all right

After all

.

Stay quiet, stay silent

.

Child abuse is ‘beautiful’,

Says the Pope

Abusive marriages ‘adequate’,

Says the counsellor

Many believe

They are so wise

.

Many have told me abuse

Is ‘not that bad’

Abusers are good and nice

.

Stay quiet, stay silent

.

Maybe it is me

I have it so wrong

Maybe abuse is love

After all

.

I should accept

Stop complaining

Accept my lot

Like a good girl

.

Stay quiet, stay silent

.

Give in

.

Give up

.

Stay quiet, stay silent

.

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. Thanks for sharing.
    Never stay quiet. Trust your instincts. Abuse is wrong. For me it caused me to separate from my true self at age 3. I lived a sad false self life ever since until now. Now I am free in the world to be myself. That all came from getting angry and speaking out.
