Never flawed

Post by Tryingtostayafloat »

I wrote this a while ago, it's something I like to recite to myself.

For sometimes when the pain would come she'd turn to hurt herself,
Inward came a hungry rage to plague upon her wealth.
She did not know till recently what trauma she'd endured,
How it changed her brain inside nad she was never flawed.
Just avaliable in readiness to escape in any kind of form,
She'd entrench herself in awareness, ready to perform.
Danger to her is always near,
Hypervigilance is exhausting,
Time to let go of the fear.
It happened a long time ago, she's not that little girl,
But fully grown, knows the truth and what that young girl needs,
She wraps her arms around herself,
This time takes the lead.
Our brains can be remapped,
I'm here,
I love you,
You're not alone,
You're no longer trapped.

I thought my heart was failing
Hey you're ok, you seem to be still standing
Flashes appeared in the corner of my eyes, I saw the stars and I didn't ask why
Heard the voices and caught my breath
So close and yet so far from death
-Florence + the machine

Hi Tryingtostayafloat,

Thank you for sharing this with us. It's beautiful and I love the image of you wrapping your arms around yourself.
It is fierce and affirming.
