My truth. My life.

I am

Naked and betrayed.

Vulnerable and damaged.

Coerced and intimidated.

Suffocated and constrained.


I battled all of these afflictions.

I won.

I am strong.

I am a survivor.


This is done for Picture it & Write


Picture it & Write is a weekly creative writing prompt hosted by the Ermilia coauthors, Ermisenda and Eliabeth.  We invite you to join in; continue the story or starting your own based on inspiration from the image.  Poetry and foreign languages are welcome, but please provide a translation.  This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.
