If you take a look at her,
You’d think she never struggled
But if you asked her questions
Such as, “If you could go back in time,
Would you change anything?”
She’d smile and say, “no,
My past is the reason
To why I am who I am today.”
There’s a story she wants to share.
When she was seventeen, she was abused
By someone she thought loved her.
Emotional, physical, and verbal abuse.
He played with her feelings
Pretending that he was faithful
But he was with three other girls.
She confronted him about it
And into the hospital she went.
She endured bruises on her body
But no one could tell by the way she smiles,
The way she looks happy all the time.
She’s been through the pain
No one should ever go through.
But it’s made her stronger, wiser, and more cautious.
And, she didn’t give up on love.
