As someone who struggles with trauma, both from my childhood and through triggering moments, it can come back to me within an instant. I can feel like I am there and relive it like it's happening right in front of me. These scars on my mind can open up like a fresh wound and I know that regardless of how I am feeling or how I felt, now I just need to tell myself that all will be right. Accept what happened and move forward, allowing the wounds to heal and make way for scars that are stronger than the skin that was there before.
I want to reach back in time.
Now knowing what happened,
I want to embrace myself
and tell me it was not ok
and tell me it will be all right.
I wish I could repair the unseen scrapes
that happened on the heart.
Help them heal before
I can feel them as deep wounds.
But these wounds sting today. Feeling like it is happening all over again.
