What I was I am no longer,
I am older and I'm stronger,
What I've achieved, I've done alone
You were gone and I have grown.

Never again am I blooded and beaten,
In your world that I felt so incomplete in.
Didn't stay strewn and ill-tempered tossed
I escaped, and you have lost.

Just bouncing ideas around for a domestic abuse poem, not complete yet

And responds, please be courteous

It is a work in progress, I have been having bad dreams and flashbacks recently so I decided to write something punchy and positive to be my hearts anthem.

I am well I hope you are too x
