Today It May Feel As Though Only You’re In This Darkness

Posted: January 11, 2021

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

A survivor of abuse always has this question – WHY? Why me? And sometimes, the answer comes from the most unexpected of places.

Dear Survivor…
Your Time to Fly

You look up and ask ‘why?’
Time has passed, with no reply
Are you the chosen one to feel the pain?

The world keeps turning
It feels as though it’s only you facing the darkness
The wounds you got cannot be forgotten
But the love you have is real too
Each day you see people smile
With time you will too

The sun will shine again
Your corner of the world will feel safe again
What is lost will be found again
Each day the Earth renews
With time you will too

You are like a phoenix, reborn from the ashes
Survivor of the slashes
The time is not to cry
But to ask the question ‘why?’

Why have you been given a second chance?
A moment in time to take a fresh glance?
Are you the chosen one to make a difference?
