Great poem, but I hope you aren't saying that you will never allow yourself to be with others again. Learning to make yourself safe and that the person/people you are with are safe can allow you to have friends and significant others again. I never thought it was possible but it is. Keep hoping, keep talking, keep working and we'll keep listening and caring.

Peace and love Mark...

But the loneliness and desire for fellowship are there in all your poems, aren't they? It's just that the heritage of hurt is still so overpowering. I wish you all the best as you work on this. you will know when you are ready.

Much love,

Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
