Inner Triumphs 


Inner Triumphs

Your words brought death,

I was lost without light,

Guided by a fickle flame, holding on for dear life,

Substance was lost,

Emptiness prevailed,

After all these years, why do I even care??


The blow to my cheek burned with fright,

The sting to my eye; wet with crimson,

Flight with no wings, shrieking trembles,

“You better listen!”

To what message,  I’ll never know,

All I remember is each heated blow,


No hugs of love, No butterfly kisses,

No lessons taught, No words of wisdom,

Just echoing thoughts of malicious acts,

Oh, what I would give to get my childhood back,


I’d speak louder than your calculated lies,

I’d tear down all the drapes to give the world a good look inside,

I’d scream for help despite you being pissed,

Oh, what bravery I will have for just a little kid,

I’d stand up to the monster raging within,

Your demons will  tremble, your rage spread thin,

With all my might I’ll scream, I’ll shout,

“You’re — never — hitting — me — again!”


You’ll fall to your knees as shackles hold tight,

With wings of strength, I’ll  finally take flight!

  1. This is such an intense piece. It moved me to tears. There exists no greater strength and character than that of a woman. Try as they might, no one can take that from you. It’s clear that you have a beautiful soul. Thank you for sharing the truth of your experience. ❤
