Can you hear me now?

What did he say,
and how long ago?
These things of health,
and how far I had to go?

I know that he talked of this,
I know that I should know.
He even asked, How long will
it take you to hear what I know?

You are a healthy person, only some tweaking
to be done. And, besides, you aren't the monster
you've thought yourself to be, only yourself have you been trying to flee.

So what is it, this truth to hear?
Something he's said not to fear.
But I know that it can't be,
Could it be this easy?

A coping mechanism that became a belief,
I can't believe what he's said, it's such a relief. I'm not what I feared, but used the fear to keep me from doing what was done to me.

How could this have happened to me,
so young, and just wanting to be,
left alone to grow up to see,
the man, who now holds his own destiny.

"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."
George Eliot

David, it took so long to write about this poem, as sometimes I cannot see the message within, it is brilliant, but so sad.

Thanks for sharing
