17 - For the one who has survived abuse

And you need your strength,
so you need your rest.
so take a few moments
to catch your breath,
and prepare for the journey
of what lies ahead.

Dear B, Thanks for messaging me your story. I am so sorry for what was done to you. I am glad, through everything, you are able to stand on the other side of the pain now. I wrote this poem with your story in mind.
