He walked his way home
still hurting from all of it
he could not cry
not here not now
that would give him away...
he walked home
but not to safety
was there a safe place for him?
he walked home
he dragged himself
to the unsafety of a place where you arent supposed to feel like that
he walked his way home
to his room
to his place
to the place where he would
to the place where he could hide
and there at least
he could cry...
he would cry..
he would
he would

I remember that feeling well. I was never harmed in my own home but even there I didn't feel safe. I had special hiding places where I could go to cry.

It's rough talking about these memories, but talking about them helps to rob them of their power to harm us in the future. I'm glad to see you using the Poetry Forum in such a powerful way.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
