Abuse is no laughing matter! Prose for thought!

This thing called abuse
It grips you tight
with all its might
It floods you with unwanted memories
nightmares call
as you fall
farther and farther down
your life is put on hold
as you struggle to set yourself free
free from the claws of abuse
it leaves its mark
everything in your life seems so stark
your thoughts are consumed with it
day in and day out
you try to heal
to feel
to conceal
you push and you push
until finally a light shines through
and you start to become you
as you grow and gain strength
and set yourself free
you finally start to see
that you are strong
stronger than the abuse you endured
no more will it win
