I have happiness in my heart and a thorn in my soul

Fight for your happy

on July 4, 2013

She floats through life in constant pain

She bathes in memories, stays the same

Flashes come and flashes go

She’ll never admit all that she knows

When she was little he had his way

It sometimes happened every day

Touched in a way no child should be

Haunted to this day by the depravity

Then her next “Father” he liked to hit

It chipped away at her bit by bit

She kept calling out for her Mother

But her Mother would never bother

So she accepted that she was worthless

She gave up on life and all it’s tests

She merely accepted her illness

And her absolute lack of wellness

She forgot she had the option to fight

She forgot to try for what was right

It all got lost along the way

She made plans for another day

A day that would never, ever come

Because she felt broken and undone

Until one day she remembered her voice

And on that day she made a choice

To take her stories lay them bare

Not caring of others would mock or stare

She shined a light right deep down

And found that people gathered ’round

To also tell tales and comment and share

She found that others truly care

And from the shackles she finally shook

All the broken pieces they took

And wiped herself clean shiny new

It’s something that was hard to do

And still she struggles to this day

But she has found a different way

Take the darkness and shine a light

And for your own happiness, you must fight

    She sounds smart… A shame she had to suffer, but she’s an inspiration to be sure.

    Wow that was absolutely beautiful, and an incredibly accurate way of describing how abuse touches us all, thank you!

    Just like what we were talking about, this is beautiful!!! So strong and determined, the kind of good to put out there in the world. I know that life is so hard at times and all the abuse one suffers and how that just seems to break you or you fear that it will, but then you realize that life still goes on and you are still living despite it all and not ONLY are you living but you are thriving and still sending out the good 🙂 Amazing piece
