inner peace

  • Trauma Survivor

    I saw the sun dance on the water

    And started to cry

    I felt the warmth of the rock

    And bathed in the azure blue sky.

    An inner peace

    That hadn’t been there in years

    Taken from me as a child

    Replaced with a lifetime of fears.

    I was 10 when it happened

    On that fateful day

    That would change me forever

    And leave me never feeling ok.

    But in that moment yesterday,

    I was able to see

    Who I was at my core

    Before you changed me.

    I remembered my SELF,

    My heart and my soul.

    I remembered what it’s like

    To once again feel whole.

    All the bad fell away

    And only peace remained.

    The burden I carried

    Had finally waned.

    A trauma survivor

    Fears they’ll never truly feel ok

    Remembering who I was before trauma

    Fulfilled me in the most beautiful way.
