Every Survivor Knows

Every survivor of trauma knows

that hiding the pain deep down

in the pockets of our subconscious mind

will not remove the sting of it.

Every survivor knows--

and so we process, and we study, we read,

and we try to work it out,

like a thorn stuck in our foot.

We pick up the tweezers of truth and pry away at it--

while trying to hold back our tears and frustration.

I know.

I have worked as hard as any one I know, and I have grown wiser

in the process. I have learned that the chronic presence of pain

becomes consuming, and sometimes it is necessary to take a break

from all my efforts to "heal myself" and hope in the confidence

that while I rest, my Heavenly Father does not sleep.

See: www.beyond-abuse.org for a similar poem titled

Sometimes We Need To Rest Awhile
