Sonnet for Children of the Abused

Boy taking off.jpg

 

Discovering terror - you watched love break
Her bones, her spirit, her heart all shattered
The fighter in you was ever awake
There was no rescue, no grace that mattered 

Trading pain for pain - craving protection
Seeking still outward her place to belong
Again and again blind to reflection
She chose to diminish her heart’s own song 

Feel love - lean into your Soul. Remember.
Release the deception, untie the snare
Find your wings, get lift, let go, surrender
Fear won’t follow, it breathes different air 

Your fight is over, your power lives here
Trust love to lead you to where truth is clear
