A slap, a punch, a kick from you.
Something bloodied, battered and bruised.
Broken limbs, shattered dreams.
Such a shame it all seems.

The bruises and blood are harder to see,
when the punches are words delivered upon me.
Belittled and scared from years of neglect,
a soul slowly dies a social reject.

Physical assult can readily be seem,
Emotional assult no one can gleen.
Your exagerating about this great man,
Until they saw it up front and first hand.

Now that it is over to heal is the goal.
To some how find trust in this battered soul.
How is the question? The answer I do not know.
Only through touching others will the answer show.

Very well done. Yes, healing will come and it will come through God, people and of course time!

Marilyn...I am here to tell you that yes, one can trust again, granted it isn't easy at first, but I have learned to both trust and love again dispite years of physical and mental abuse....the scars are healing more each day. Keep the faith and hold your chin high.
Hugs

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Yes, the wounds from words are hardest to
see, it is often kept a secret much longer
than physical abuse.
You write very well...keep it up.

Thankyou all for you input. The hope had to be there because I have hope. With out hope there is nothing. As I rebuild my life my strength grows. My hope floats. (please excuse my use of this phrase..lol...I couldn't find better words at this moment)
