She writes out loud. The words, her armor. She defeats shame with every key she strikes. She dives in to the remnants of the abuse, choosing to dissect the experience and name the invisible scars. Healing herself and others, along the way.

Wow, very good.
Now, get out of my head please 😉
What she said. Fantastic work.
Awww thanks, Laura. That means a lot coming from you.
Ha! I’ll try but… Thanks 🙂
I love this, it says sooo much!
That’s a GREAT compliment! Thank you so much.
My heart goes out to her, how she heals along the way. beautiful 🙂
Here’s my take- http://callitatale.blogspot.in/2014/06/youre-caged-and-you-sing.html
Thank you so much 🙂
Nice idea, a person’s writing being their natural release.
It definitely is for me. Thanks.
I like the idea of defeating shame with words.
I think it’s the only way I know how. And it’s taken me this long to figure that out. 🙂
Expressing the pain seems to soften it a bit.
Very much, it does.
The strong rhythm matches the strong words. Fantastic.
Thank you so much.
I hate that these kids feel shame when it’s so not their fault 😦 But I get that it’s that way.
No, there is definitely no fault on their end. …it takes years to learn that though. I know writing certainly helped me get to that point.
Always inspire from your experiences, no matter the pain.
It’s all for nothing if you don’t!
Love this: “She defeats shame with every key she strikes.” Some people are so amazingly brave.
Very true. I’d dare say most though struggle to even write about such experiences. It’s very difficult to do.
Shame can often silence our voices….taking that power and voice back to defeat shame with keystrokes….brilliant and beautiful both in meaning and in the way you expressed it 🙂
Thank you so much. This was quite a personal piece for me. Had I never started writing about the abuse, I still wouldn’t be able to even acknowledge it. I sincerely thank you for the kind and supportive words 🙂
Yes, name those invisible scars. Wonderful.
Thank you. I’m trying! …one post at a time 🙂
Writing will set you free! Yes!
