“You are beautiful, no matter what they say”…

I am thrilled to welcome Carol Anne as my latest guest poet.

Could have been

I could have been beautiful
I could have been strong
But you told me I was nothing
You told me I was wrong
I could have been courageous
I could have been happy
But you filled me with shame
You filled me with self-doubt
You abused my trust
In every way and more
You left me weak and stressed and sore
You ripped out my heart and soul
You taunted me each day I was alive
How was I supposed to survive and thrive?
This thing called abuse has robbed me of so much
It’s made me grow up fast
It’s made me tough
Now I’m an adult with severe ptsd
Dissociation too, can’t you see?
See this life I have endured for so long
Can’t you see how it made me strong?
Being strong isn’t all what it’s cracked up to be
On most days I just want to be free
