“Don’t judge yourself by what others did to you.”
― C. Kennedy, Ómorphi
Back in march, I began writing about a true story that has been in the making for 30 years. And She finally did it, she left!
You can read the first part here.
I finished that post with “But the story is still not over…” and now below is the rest of the story.
He drives his cruel fingers in her throat
prisoning the air, pulling the life out of her
A young boy shrieks with terror
His knees bruise her ribs
The small bag of clothes quiver in her hands
The tears in her eyes tremble and fall
She has escaped
with only her life on her back
Her daughter denies the horrendous abuse
The lawyer paces his office, eyes blanketed with raging empathy
Her flesh announce her a liar: “No money for an old woman”
“I will make them pay”, the lawyer reassures
I will keep updating this story as life happens to her. Because the story is still not over…
