Disturbed

Last night I dreamed my abuser was threatening me again
There was no one, no law to protect me, and the overwhelming
Sense of hopelessness flooded my soul, I awoke with a start
I thought of the day we celebrated, how far I've come in my
Journey and I realized the only way forward is to hit the bottom
In hopelessness because only then can you determine
Whether you will walk forward even if it means death
It is one of the most valuable lessons of my life that in
Order to be free sometimes you have to look death in
The face and with fear and trembling take the steps forward
To make you stronger, to live life in hope, and to never forget
You can become active in making change by telling your story
And doing for others what no one else dared to do as a friend
