If we have been
betrayed
and hurt
so much so

we see those that
only want to
love us
as monsters

mistrust

fear of others
the presumption
that we would be
harmed again

of course we do
some abuse
struck
so very
deep and was
unnatural

we grew up
with maladaptive
patterns
thank grace
we survived

but I believe
no matter how
deep the wounds
no matter
how early

we can heal

forgiveness
understanding
of those
who hurt us

forgiveness
for ourselves
for those
we hurt

regret’s tears
flow open
deep

the human
conscience
can’t be forever
covered

our love

starts with
the
self

and then
reaches
out.
