Healing ABUSE By Forgiving

How to repair what you tore away
Embedded each detail, causing dismay
Anger, resentment, an eye for an eye
Lingering doubt while questioning why
Imminent danger, enticed to strike back
Numbing distortion, white's painted black
Grief over innocence, stolen by you

Aged 20 years, yet so little I grew
Buried a secret, too much to bear
Unable to keep down, disclose do I dare?
Searching I look for serenity's road
End all this chaos, I have to unload

But how can I heal a pain that's vein-deep?
Years of denial, I spoke not a peep

Forgive, I must do this, I cannot ignore
Open old wounds to heal at my core
Remember the child that I used to be
Grieve for that loss, set my anger free
Invite all my demons, destroy their sick game
Value myself, redirect blame
Imagine direction then let myself go
Navigate forward while taking it slow
Gift of forgiving will heal me I know...

    forgiveness is healing, true, but only in part, as real healing, and I mean the kind that will take abuse out of your life forever, comes from forgiving ourselves. You see....when there is something in our past, that we 'beat ourselves up' over, the truth is that there is always someone who will come along and join in. I get this feeling from your words, "Value myself, redirect blame" which tells me you need to stop 'beating yourself up.' wishing you the best always, hugs, Catie :)

    one more thing, when it comes to forgiving those whom have abused us, it is easier when you realize that they have never, ever reached the spirit within. My body may have suffered their blows and abuses, but in clearer reality, they..."can't touch this!"
