Sometimes We Have to Rescue Ourselves!

Photo by David Altmejd

I felt the heaviness of a sorrow too deep to name,

As I tried to understand the violence, but it was in vain.

Because love is never supposed to hurt or cause us pain,

I kept the bruises hidden, too embarrassed to proclaim

To anyone that I needed help, couldn’t get past the shame.

But, finally I prayed one night for enough courage to gain

To say no more to enduring the terror of this awful bane,

And clawed my way from under the tormentor’s chains.
