A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Poem – Alone, But It’s Okay ~ Lilly Hope Lucario



 Poem – Alone, But It’s Okay 

by Lilly Hope Lucario


I’ve been alone

Since I ever remember

No-one to care

No-one to trust

No-one to rely on


Alone as a child

Alone as an adult

Alone in a crowd

Alone in a marriage

Always alone


It’s meant to be

And I am used to it

It’s not new

It’s my normal


So, upon that reflection

I know I’ll survive

I’ll be okay

I’ll be there

For me


And that’s okay

No fear

No fighting it

Just acceptance

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. Its my normal too so I understand this very well. You expressed it so beautifully here. You really are gifted:)

  2. It’s too many of us. I so feel that way too. I agree…you write beautifully.

    • Thank you Shannon ❤ I am always sad people relate to my work, blogs, poems etc, because I don't want anyone to suffer. But, I know it brings comfort to others, to know someone does understand.
      ❤ ❤

      • Maybe in our loneliness we can come together and not be as lonely. I think that is one of the most beautiful things you do… you share from your heart what we all already feel but do not say. Thank you for that sweet Lilly! ❤
