I shall lick my wounds, but I won't hide.
I will own my hurt with pride.
For I am overcoming my past.
I am tackling my demons at last.
I will not feel shame for what I have been through.
Just don’t judge me, I wouldn’t judge you.
I’ve felt abandoned, afraid and all alone.
But now I know I’m loved, and have a safe home.
I’ve felt trauma, abuse and neglect that wasn’t my fault.
But I will lick my wounds and own my scars without guilt.
My past like my future is just a part of me.
So I’m going to thrive and heal just you see.
