I am a survivor of extremely severe ritualistic childhood abuse and sadistic systematic torture. Without God's intervention in my life I wouldn't be here - NOW is the time for me to tell MY story by speaking the TRUTH about MY life. I will be silenced no more! On this blog I share MY life, MY healing journey; helpful quotes/stuff I come across and MY thoughts along the way. The more I speak out the more liberated I am from the shame and trauma of the abuse. My broken wings are gradually being restored. This blog has helped me begin to get my voice back and documents the journey God is taking me on to heal me from the trauma and damage caused by that most appalling abuse.

SHAME . . . NOT ME

I came across the following poem on a friend's site and thought I'd borrow it for here as it was so good.

SHAME…NOT ME

Shame on you… for damaging me
Shame on you… for your lies and pretence
Shame on you… for your twisted world

Shame on me… NO THERE IS NO SHAME ON ME

Shame on you… for causing me to suffer so
Shame on you… for not hearing my silent screams
Shame on you… for turning your back on me

Shame on me… NO THERE IS NO SHAME ON ME
