You won't hurt me anymore

Post by littleflower » Tue Sep 11, 2012 12:41 pm

From the look in your eyes: the expression on your face
The actions you were expecting had not taken place
You thought you had conquered me: left me undone
By your most awful cruelty: the unkind words you spun

Yet, here I am standing: both wounded and sore:
But, you will not be hurting me like that any more
For I've found my firm footing: my true self within
And I'm letting go of you so that my new life can begin

So don't look in my direction or ever call me again
I'm letting go of the negatives that I had allowed in
From this day going forward till the sun doesn't shine
I won't let anything hurtful into this new heart of mine.

LittleFlower,
This is a very cool poem. In my head I am hearing it like slam poetry - like you are standing up and saying this out loud with all kinds of energy and fierceness. "You will NOT be hurting me like that anymore!" I love the strength in it - the way you are standing up for you and doing what you need to do to move forward. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Much love,
bug

I love the strength in this poem and how you are fighting back! I really felt your rebellion towards your abuser and you bought tears to my eyes. Take care my lovely, we will one day conquer, they won't win!
