You want me to become aware
Of what my ankle, knee and lower back are saying?
You want me to stay in my body?
You want me to feel my feelings?
You want me to say what I need to say?
You want me to tell my truth?
Are you kidding me?
You want me to stay connected to myself, my body
And my feelings?
Why would I do that?
I used to scream.
You tell me that I am safe,
That there is no reason to
Disconnect any more,
That you are there for me as I become
Aware of my feelings and body,
It takes tremendous strength for me to
look deep inside of myself
Where there are dark shadows,
But my shadows are demanding that light
Shown on them,
There is no reason to hide any more,
There is no reason to remain silent any more,
It’s not my shame!!
I can be in my body.
I can love myself.
It’s not my shame!
I have come back home to my body
And to myself,
I know that I am safe to feel my feelings,
I know that I am safe to speak my truth,
I have become aware of the power I have deep inside,
I know that I am an empowered Warrior
Who is speaking her truth and will never
Back down until victim blaming, shaming stops.
I am aware of the connection to my body
And know where the trauma is held,
I am loving myself and my body every single day.
I am being gentle with myself for
I know that I am still healing.
