Wednesday Morning Beauty Quote

IMG_0929

This month is Domestic Violence month and unfortunately, it is a subject that we tend to shun away from.  Today, I am being naturally me and baring it all without filters!!! I am sharing a side of me that I have never shared publicly before because I hope to bring awareness to my readers and I believe that beauty starts from the inside out.

I am a survivor of domestic violence from watching my father abuse my mother to being abuse physically in high school by a boyfriend and then verbally as an adult from my ex-husband. Today, I realize that I am beautiful and love is not abusive!!!

I wrote a poem from the heart in the late 90’s as a dedication to my younger self and any woman who has experienced domestic violence and I have shared this poem on Touching Heart, a website that is dedicated to helping women affected by domestic violence.

This is not just a poem from what I have seen, heard or experienced, it is a poem for anyone who has been affected by domestic violence or someone who is in denial. I pray and hope that this helps someone to seek shelter and help. Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
