Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Poem ~ Red Flags & Fear

Poem – Red Flags & Fear

~ By Lilly Hope Lucario

red flags

A life of pain

Learned so very young

Watch, discern and fear

Their many red flags


Learned from masters

Of lies, harm, manipulation

They taught me deeply

Of worst in humanity


Testing continual

My subconscious mind

I will find your lies

And your red flags

Don’t lie to me

Or pretend what you’re not

I will see past that mask

Your deceit & dishonesty


Don’t lie to yourself

Who you really are

I will see your denial

Your positive illusion


A life of harm

Fear drives my needs

Protection mode

Switch jammed on


Deep fear continues

Ongoing isolation

Red flags and fear

The rulers of my life

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
