Dear adult me,
I wish you could forget the pain I suffered
I wish you did not feel responsible for the monster touched
I wish the burden of shame was not yours to bear
I wish our childhood was full of laughter and joy
I wish we got to experience the innocence of being a child with love.
I’m sorry you had to go through the journey of questioning why weren’t you good enough to be love
The answers may never come,
I know you will get judge with “what’s wrong with her.” Why is she that way?
But know that I know what happened to you and understand.
My hope is that you will find a way to love YOU and that will be enough.
My hope is that in spite of our beginning, you will find the courage to create a path that will give you peace, I hope you discover the powerful YOU, so you can heal the broken little girl Inside.
