Trust After Abuse


Annie's Poetry

Trusting again after being deceived

Exploited, abused and psychologically tormented

Can be frightening thing to do

You do not trust your own judgement

You question your own perceptions

You wonder if they are all the same

Humanity and it’s benevolence

Comes to be questioned

It takes time but you can

Begin to trust yourself again

Even after having been

Taken in by someone

Who was not at all what they seemed

You have come out of it stronger

Beaten and bruised

Emotionally scarred and hurt

But life is like a roller coaster

You can keep going forward

And it will go up again

There really are good people

Who will appreciate you sincerely

And they are looking for

Someone to trust

Someone who is authentic

Someone like you
