The Face

I am the face of abuse

I hold the scares

Seen and unseen

I am the child

With innocence stolen

I am the young girl

That trusted wrongly

I am the woman

That chose poorly

Then suffered greatly

I am the voice

That cries out

In the darkness

I am the personality

Shattered and robed

Yes I am the face of abuse

That found the strength

To become a survivor

That part hits close to home. And the ending is strong, like all survivors become.
