Resilient echoes

A survivor's journey.

By Abigail WanjiruPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

In the depths of shadows, where pain resides,

a soul bears scars and silence hides.

Whispers linger through the echoes of a haunting night,

a survivor's fight.

Unseen battles leave scars unseen,

shattered trust and a soul unclean.

Yet, within the darkness, a resilient flame,

a survivor's spirit not defined by shame.

In the quiet moments, a heart's lament,

struggling with the weight of relentless torment.

Yet strength emerges, like a phoenix rise,

defying shadows, reclaiming skies.

No judgement in the eyes that weep,

a healing journey, slow and deep.

For in the solidarity of empathetic embrace,

survivors find a gentle space.

May empathy replace the silent void,

in understanding hearts, strength deployed.

For in the poetry of healing, courage unfurls,

a testament to the strength of survivor pearls.
