Another week finds us back at the Sandbox Writing Challenge. We’re suppose to ‘set free our captive parts’ ……asking ourselves these two questions….
What can you do to free that part of yourself?
Little girl hiding
From the boogeyman.
Some say there is no such thing
But she knows differently.
He comes in the day
He comes in the night
There is no escaping….
She’s his for the taking…..
Her cries not to be heard…..
I’m that little girl…that part of me is locked away, hidden in that house. Longing for the protection that would never come.
That Little girl is all grown up
She’s not hiding any more
He didn’t win
She opened up that door.
She stepped outside
She took a breath….
(Cheers to Being Free!)
I’m a big girl now…..I’ve opened the door and freed myself, no longer hiding in that house. I Am my own protection….
Forgiveness and acceptance set me free….he can’t hurt me anymore.
