This is so beautiful 👉🏼 "The story of my survival isn’t a glamorous one – it isn’t made up of “once upon a times” and “happily ever afters”. It doesn’t roll off the tongue with sweet metaphors or come with the invitation of batting lids. Rather, it is told through gritted teeth and bloodshot eyes. It is pulled, dragged, forced through white clenched fists as I try and hold it back from ears too delicate to understand that it is more bloodied knees than petticoat curtseys, more self-depreciation and loathing than self-respect and pride. More “I’m sorry” than the unapologetic tale it should have been. You see, I was made more from the blood and scars than the smiles and sunshine. I was shaped by misery and crafted by dismay. But the one flicker of hope, the one ray of sunshine through it all was a little girl, the little me I once knew, who refused to give up – who dusted her knees, licked the blood from still open wounds and smiled through the tears. For she knew. Somehow, she knew that she was destined for greater things. Destined for stories worthy of pages and the ears of hopeful hearts" - @beccaleepoetry #beccalee ( via @SoulBraille #SoulBraille ) 🖤
