Poetry By Bethany K.

Poetry

I’ve been swimming against the current for so long,

My red towel is bleached pink from the sun.

My body’s strength,

is gone.

Perhaps it isn’t too late

to turn around.

I’m just

so

tired now.

Perhaps it’s past time

to just

drown.

I’ve begun to sink.

I know this defeat.

My prayers bubble up to the surface,

Never to be seen

As my body washes out

to the sea.

Released.

Free.

NOT MY SECRET...overcoming the shame of sexual abuse

I’ve been swimming against the current for so long,

My red towel is bleached pink from the sun.

My body’s strength,

is gone.

Perhaps it isn’t too late

to turn around.

I’m just

so

tired now.

Perhaps it’s past time

to just

drown.

I’ve begun to sink.

I know this defeat.

My prayers bubble up to the surface,

Never to be seen

As my body washes out

to the sea.

Released.

Free.
