4 - For the one who is standing on the other side of abuse and pain from years ago

May all of the strength
you are gathering here
collapse like waves
on top of your fears
and run like a river
through all of the years.

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.
