An acrostic verse about recovering from childhood trauma.

Healing seems a distant notion,
some fabricated concept of
Satan's laughing attempt
to make us cry
with deeper sorrows.

Eerily, as time trudges by,
the hands of these strangers
take mine into theirs
- so warm and gentle -
and for a time,
my face is not wet with tears.

Alone no longer,
I am among friends
whose tear-stained faces
are also focusing on
the sun-filled sky,
and not the darkness
we find behind our hands.

Learning to let go
of childhood anguish
has become our target.
We shall cherish the bonds between us,
each knowing the deepest and
darkest secrets of the others.

Insight will reveal itself to us in time
For we will understand that time itself
is only borrowed from God,
and His intent
is for us to share it with one another.

Never giving up the battle,
and never giving in,
we shall conquer our fears and
live out our dreams,.

Grown-up emotionally,
our relationships will flourish.
Then, we will fully realize that
has taken place.
