There is a place where we can get
there is a place where we feel safe
there is a person that cares for us
there is a friend to make us feel loved
there is a room where we can lay down
there is a place where we can be kids again
there is a place
where is that place?
I look for it
someday I will find it
and then
I can feel safe
and laugh
and see the stars
and the flowers
and see myself
and I will not look away
at my image
I will be beautiful again...

You may have already found that place here at MS. I think I have. After posting that story yesterday, I was able to cry for the first time for my inner child without being in a therapist's office. Here I don't feel alone. I feel safe. I can let myself cry. I only let myself cry for five minutes, but it felt good.

By sharing this poem, you have shown us that you ARE beautiful. I hope you can see that, too.


As a small child, I felt in my heart two contradictory feelings, the horror of life and the ecstasy of life. --Charles Baudelaire

I second Liri, sunwolf. You are a beautiful person, and others here see that. I know I do.


Peace, and a big HUG,


Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home Iíll never see

It may sound absurd...but donít be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but wonít you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
Itís not easy to be me

That beauty is already there, my friend, as others are telling you. That's one of the things we discover as we recover: that the terrible things we learned to believe about ourselves as boys were all false lessons and lies from the abusers. I cried the first time I looked in the mirror in the morning and realized that I no longer hated myself for being me.

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.
(Woody Guthrie)
