I wish I knew

She spoke to the teachers

they told her to sit

to wait for her turn

and to speak with respect

She spoke to her parents

they told her to try

to never give up

to work hard and strive

She spoke to her friends

they told her to change

to act more like them

to stop being strange

She spoke to her self

she wondered what’s wrong?

why don’t I fit in?

why cant I belong?

And finally when

her exhaustion was high

she wandered bereft

out into the night.

She spoke to the moon

and the stars let her see

you’re already enough

why can’t you just be?

You sparkle with life

you’re so full to the brim

why worry about

the need to fit in?

You’re made of pure sunlight

with so much to share

don’t walk down the same road

you’re not going there…

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
