5x survival poetry

The weekend inspiration list was so much fun last week that I made you another one. The theme survival poetry comes from my experience recently sharing my personal history of sexual violence with my loved ones. It is affirming to be able to start to own my own voice again, and the response was overwhelming in so many beautiful, heartbreaking ways. I recommend getting cozy for these with a big cup of tea, and preferably a cat to cuddle.

Enjoy
