Leaving home was the only way to
Extract herself/ still sane
From an environment
That was Toxic to her soul
Broken promises/ broken heart/ and all but broken bones
Endless cycle of abuse/ like a clothes dryer tumbling /with no kill switch
Hostage to their anger/ drowning /in a sea of their ignorance & spite
Innocence stolen/ self-esteem broken in half/ with a snap
No more/ she has left it all behind/ She is learning to love herself/ She is
Done with them!

Thank you so much 🙂
Saving one’s self is the best revenge.
