Words Echo

Echos undulate with words
At first, those words pulsed with agony
Betrayal once again a devastating visitor
Eventually, those words barely stung though because they became something expected
Something I became desensitized to

Adjusting to the burden that wasn’t mine but a burden the monster sewed onto my back
And because of a volatile captor, I held my ambiguous blank face telling myself I’m strong and a survivor, not something created by Frankenstein
Because I knew my strength I knew his burden would remain in his diseased mind regardless if I’m carrying the burden or not

Reality is shaken by the monsters fists and loud insulting and manipulative words
And it seemed those vicious behaviors would make my reality crumble and blow away with Gods exhale
Intriguing to think of God when evil demanded an audience with yours truly night and day

Refusing to bend to this controlling sinister presence
Accepting fear as a weight that will go away with work
Reminding myself with reassuring words I am a warrior and this monster fears me
Redefining how strong I am
My words echo that strength and resilience
