It starts innocently enough, harsh words that can't be taken back, a grab, a push, a shove; that always feels like anything but love.
It wasn't supposed to be this way; the cake, the presents and the vows, I was convinced my life would be different now.
Will there ever come a day when my body is truly mine? When I can wear what I want instead of always covering up the signs?
I've learned to hide it well, God only knows I've spent a lifetime learning how to survive this life of hell.
Do I long for a life that can never be? It seems the answer to that is "yes" because the signs are all around me.
The books, the movies and the songs, no longer send a message to treat a woman with reverence. What then is the message we're sending to girls about the value of their very presence? What of my own childhood that was full of hurt, anger and self-loathing?
That was how I learned to cover up the secrets and the lies with just the right clothing.
I want out, I want to be free; sometimes Too often, I simply begged death to take me.
Then I met a woman who told me, “there is another way!” She taught me to find my inner strength, and that empowered me to make it through the day. I thought my only way out was to learn to fight, but she told me the way out, is through peace and light.
I walked in darkness, but have found the light, no longer do I require the need to fight. The path of least resistance now guides my way, because this is what brings me joy and happiness every day.
Every person has their Divine Design, everyday I'm grateful I've discovered mine.
