REVERSE THE DAMAGE…

REVERSE THE DAMAGE…

Related image


No one wants to be that person

No one wants to be accused for something they never did

But what happens if you don’t even know you are being abused?

What happens when you feel you deserve to be battered or bruised?

 

You know I’ll tell you something

There are people in life that hurt you

But there are people who are even worse

Who damage you emotionally?

 

Steal your faith; break your trust

And you don’t even know; what they did to you

Till later it’s so hard to connect

With confusing memories stuck in your head



Nothing can fill the hole

Million bruises in the soul

one step forward, two steps back; you fall

everything you thought never existed at all



They choke you; but you feel that it’s your fault

Like you don’t deserve to heal; keep filling your wounds with salt

Once you've worked so hard thinking

 This is such a fine beginning

 

And you don’t even realize; you look up to them

Thinking this is me, and that’s who I want to become

Hoping one day you will get their approval

Then comes the rational truth; it’s so unfair and cruel

 

When no matter how hard you try

Their expectations keep getting high

They just want to push you down

Till you completely drown

 

Because they never cared about you

The torment you went through

They just love to play twisted games

As the saints watch you break; and burn down in flames

 

There is no escape; it's always your mistake

You’ll always be wrong; it’s all too much to take

You deserve better; that’s keeping you from being one of them

Don’t constrain yourself from expressing

 

You can’t lie forever; don’t change just to fit in

Don’t let them get to you; don’t let them win.

This was really good. I liked the realism and how it made me feel. The world puts was too much pressure on people and sometimes its just unfair.

So very real, it's so easy to get caught up in abuse especially if you have feelings for the person! I like this, it's bold and encouraging. Awesome!

Poignant...and rich with imagery of a deep pain and anguish. No human who lives any amount of time n this world, escapes pain and agony of one form or another. Sometimes, we have to be strong enough to reach out for help--admit that we need someone beyond ourselves...or at least ask for someone to listen and advise us. Pain is the fire that shapes the soul...it defines us...makes us stronger, more compassionate, and more empathetic. It deepens our conscience and refines our character. Never apologize for the wounds...or the scars...but do not let them destroy your heart, either. Beautiful poem.

This poem is so encouraging. I loved each and every line from beginning to end. Your words are true. I can relate to this poem. Very well written keep it up.

The last two lines are very true. Always remember those words. Anyway, overall, your writing is great here. This feels kind of like something somebody would actually say to a friend who's in this kind of predicament. Credit to you for making this both poetic and realistic sounding. Some people struggle with that more than others.

I do have a few critiques to give: In the line "Who damage you emotionally?" You don't need to question mark.

And the line "You deserve better; that’s keeping you from being one of them" is not bad, but it's a little clumsy and weak. It could benefit from some revision.

Other than those things, all I have to say is great job. This piece is strong as is, but with just a few minor tweaks, it could be at its strongest. Keep on writing! :)

Honest and strong thoughts dear Poet.
"You can’t lie forever; don’t change just to fit in
Don’t let them get to you; don’t let them win."
The above lines is real wisdom shared. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
