I wrote these poems from a place of deep pain and sadness. They reflect some of my experiences, and the experiences of victims of abuse. I wrote them to empower them and give them a voice, one that their abusers have taken away. It is my hope that these poems will open hearts and minds to impact of abusive actions.
Be warned, however; It is painful to walk through a difficult past (your own or someone else’s) alone. As you read these poems be aware of your emotions, and the memories that may emerge. Thus, it is better to only read one poem at a time.
Please be aware that you will want to read these poems out loud in order to get the most from them.
Proverbs 31:8 (New Living Translation)
Speak up for those who caannot speak for themselves; Ensure justice for those being crushed
