Three years

20190515_073519

Three years and five months
Since the day I reported
Three years and five months
Since my life became even more distorted

Three years and five months
Since I chose to take a stand
Three years and five months
No longer at your command

Three years and five months
Since you didn’t seem so smart
Three years and five months
Since your life began to fall apart

Three years and five months
I was no longer yours so small
Three years and five months
I began to stand so tall

Three years and five months
Since I gave myself a choice
Three years and five months
I finally found my voice

Three years and five months
I began to tell my truth
Three years and five months
People know the story of my youth

Three years and five months
Living each day in fear
Three years and five months
Still I will not disappear

Three years and five months
Is a really long time to fight
Three years and five months
Not much compared to twenty years of day and night

Three years and five months
Of memories, tears and being lonely
Three years and five months
Finally I begin to heal, slowly

Three years and five months
I just want some time to rest
Three years and five months
For this weight to be lifted from my chest

Three years and five months
My mind needs some release
Three years and five months
Just needs a little peace

Three years and five months
Don’t think that I’ll give up
Three years and five months
I have more fight within my cup

Three years and five months
I just want you to know
Three years and five months
Stronger each day I grow

Three years and five months
And a whole life full of strife
Three years and five months
Now I am taking back my life

Three years and five months
May go on another three
Three years and five months
But your victims will finally be free

Three years and five months
As you begin to cower
Three years and five months
This survivor shows her power!

One thought on “Three years

  1. Yes!!! What a difference in everything in the last three years and five months!!! You have indeed found your voice! You have stepped out of the dark hell-hole of shame! You are gaining strength mightily! You are looking and moving forward! You are linking up with other survivors, and together you are transforming into thrivers! You are a shining light to many, and a truth-telling slayer of scurrilous lies! You are an exposer of shameful secrets! You are a hope-giver and a shining example of great integrity in the face of horrendous abuse and neglect! In short…you are amazing!!!!
    Keep going! You’re doing a great job -for others, as well as yourself, and I couldn’t be more proud of you, or thrilled for you!!!! Go, girl!!!
