A Poem by Cat

This poem is dedicated to all of the young women that were a part of my stays at hospitals. You guys gave me hope.. I hope you can have some to. For all those that know what it's like.. just breathe.


Breathe in Breathe out

Breathe out the breath you've been holding for so long


Breathe in the good Breathe out the bad

Let go of the pain to which you've been holdin on


It's hard to forgive him for the pain he put you through

the way he touched you

the way he broke you down


Breathe it in Breathe him out

Show them all you've got what it takes

Put them in their place


Breathe in the real you Breathe out your fake smiles

You are better than them

Does their opinion really matter?


What they said to you still runs through your mind

As if that day is on rewind


I know they made you feel unworthy

But it's the other way around surly


Just breathe in the good Breathe out the bad

It's all on you now


Breathe in Breathe out


It's your stage now Your turn to bow

This is your time to shine

Don't hold it inside.

This poem is untitled because like all of the strong women I know, we do not need labels.
