I am my own Survivor

I remember our Love/Hate relationship. It seems so long ago in a different life. But I'll never forget what you did to me, Making me cower like a dog, Making me less a person. The beating I took at your hands, Bruising my face, my character, And my inner self destroying my soul. I walked away. Burying my love deep into, The darkness of my heart. I vow never to say your name again. Your memory is dead and buried. I pulled myself up from the depths, Of hell where you put me. I vowed never will anyone, Raise a hand to me ever. I am a survivor. Years and years it took me to, Love myself in order to love others. I finally found myself. I have been reborn. I can breathe and best of all, I can begin to live.

We do what we must to survive. It only takes courage, and you have it. I had a similar experience and it saved my life.

We are all survivors. I'm so sorry this happened to you also. But we do live on. Sadly there are people who truly still live in hell but maybe one day they will the courage to walk away like we did.
