Abuse always leaves a mark,
On the body, mind and soul.
If the bruises on your soul were visible
You can hide the marks of the past,
but you can’t hide from the imprints
they have left on your mind, body and soul.
Handprints of memories
forever emblazoned on my skin.
Jennifer Gigi Friedman Schaeffer
Clothes may hide the scars,
but if you want to see me,
just look into my eyes.
She kept herself veiled to hide
the abuses that tamed and groomed her to ideality.
Abuse can’t be seen with the eyes
only the Spirit can discern a touched soul.
Love enlightens a soul,
whereas lust leaves a scar.
Her screams muted and scars
veiled she struggled to survive.
Takers leave their prints on a giver
like a welt from a kind assault..
Rational Akrofi Akuffo
None reached my mind to know it’s beauty.
They all reached for my body to partake of it.
Everybody wants a piece of me!
Mayet Pequena – Rivera
a woman of resilience fought
her way out of the abyss of abuse .
The imprints of abuse leave
a long lasting impact on the mind of a victim.
Amber Dawn Roach
Thoughts of an Empath: “As she took off her cape,
how many souls she saved that day
by just being herself.
Nancy Jean Macneil
The stains of many hands that touched my
life shall remain forever imprinted on my soul.
She hides her bruises under a scarf of lies.
Being a woman is the most difficult,
we are judged even by just the touch of hands.
Mary Angelica Amerkhan
Life has beaten and imprinted
her but it will never break her soul.
Her broken but beautiful body had been
man-handled by too many anonymous men.
A girls skin taken as if she has
no saying in the matter- unforgettable crimes .
If the scars on her skin could talk.
Not all the fingerprints opens the way,
sometimes it closes the door completely.
Alice Axle Kingston
She let too many people leave
their mark instead of making her own.
Sometimes you feel as if you
carry the world on your back.
Many backstabbed her
but she stood firm and grew to inspire others.
