I wish to share a poem from an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse.  This poem is about  thanking her younger self  for surviving and also learning to thrive.

Dear Belle

To be the little girl I once was..

How proud I am of you,

for seeking the worth in life

when times were so blue.

You walked through the fire with grace.

All those years of silence,

holding back tears of malice.

The writing helped save face.

So brave you were, protecting one and all.

The secret, your shelter.

The loneliness, your solace.

Yet Belle you did not fall.

Despite lacking normalcy,

you cherished your mom and family.

Animals became forever friends

and relied on them as their love never ends.

Although you never gave into the pity of others,

the shame imprisoned your heart.

Now it’s time, take a chance and open up your heart.

Little Belle, hear your voice loud and clear.

Loudly shout and without fear

“NO!” “STOP.”

And you are free to love, and feel love.

Dear Belle I’m so proud of you brave little girl.

And know that I love you with all of my entire heart.

You are loved and cherished and never ever alone.

Love always and forever

Belle
