Blooming Into A Powerful Woman

 

I will never understand why six men choose to me

to violate and abuse me in the way they did,

 

Will never understand why nothing was done

to the sixteen-year-old who abused

me when I was eleven years old,

 

Will never understand why a police officer

blamed me for being raped and defended

two rapists at University of Cincinnati,

 

Will never understand why I was the one

that was blamed, shamed, emotionally abused,

retaliated against by chain of command,

Will never understand why I lost my career

for coming forward to report the crime that

was committed against me in the Navy

while rapist keeps his career and is promoted,

 

However, through all of this trauma,

I have broken free from there control,

I am no longer afraid,

I speak my truth,

I feel my feelings,

 

I have bloomed like the lotus flower,

Post traumatic growth has taken place,

Deep healing has taken place that is

leading in new direction,

I have new strengths that

I did not know I had before,

 

I realize just how powerful my voice has become,

Realize that I am standing in my light,

Shining brightly

and realize that I am an

empowered Warrior that has many gifts

of healing to share with the world.

This is my new purpose in life.
