Survive to Thrive
Take a deep breath,
Don't give up,
You feel alone,
You feel trapped,
You feel helpless,
the words echoing in your soul,
Your personal torture chamber,
The invisible scars try to heal, forever bleeding
You smile thru the suffering,
No one understands but those that survive,
No one believes it's true till it's too late,
If someone sees a broken bone,
they want to fix it,
If they hear your spirit is broken,
you're quarantined and forgotten,
People are mesmerized by the lightning,
but ignore the warning of thunder.
thunder is the warning danger is imminent.
By the time they see it strike you,
you're already dead
I know you're alone now,
but try to remember,
You are not damaged goods.
You do not deserve it.
You're not crazy,
You're not a loser,
You're not pathetic,
Their actions are not justified, it's not your fault.
You won't always be vilified.
You deserve saving.
You deserve reassurance,
You deserve kindness and a gentle touch.
You do your best to survive,
In hopes someday you will thrive.
