“I JUSTIFY ME”~Maxwanette A Poetess

“I JUSTIFY ME”

My walk, my talk, my laugh my smile,

It’s my way, my own, my style.

You don’t have to like or love it, feelings are free,

Don’t you know?

I JUSTIFY ME.

To love & to have lost, is not the same…lost identity.

The whisper of your voice, the gentle blowing of the wind…such similarities.

I forget your name, your touch, your purpose,

For you see, I found out that,

I JUSTIFY ME.

Experiences, time moves on endlessly.

I recall words, trying to find aim to inflict pain, were told to me.

“It is what it is”, were the words he first spoke, following with “Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke”,

Shhh, come here baby, listen, you don’t have to agree, but

I JUSTIFY ME.

I don’t know if anyone told you, I’m not bitter nor empty,

I love myself and I’m happy being me.

I don’t need anyone to set my heart free, I am a unique soul,

See, I’ve been trying to tell you…

I JUSTIFY ME.

 

*There are moments in life, that we encounter abuse. Some leave, leave and return, die and even remain in the abuse. One of the questions I have heard so often, is “Why do they stay,  why don’t they just leave?” Abuse, especially on a continuum (also the severity), can cause one to forget who they are. Many survivors, lose their sense of self before, during or after the experience. It isn’t an easy situation to deal with. The physical scars are bad enough, but the psychological ramifications can be and often is very detrimental to an individuals overall well being.

It is imperative for those who have gone through and or currently going through Domestic Violence (DV), to be reminded of SELF and how wonderfully created they are, as well as they really have more power than they could fathom.
