It’s hard to watch you suffer.
I see you.
I see your pain.
From a marriage that has become a prison for you
Of promises made and intentions set
Yet lifeless and suffocating now
I see the life force in you slowly seeping from your body
The light disappearing from your eyes
Eyes now soaked by tears
That are more common than not.
And yet you stay.
You tell yourself that you must.
Your children need this marriage.
But that is a lie.
There are so many lies.
You feel so completely, utterly alone.
Your mind says that to make a change would be to admit failure.
Your pride steps in and says, ‘yes! And we’ll have none of that!”
These present companions can be more threatening than your spouse.
One small step taken from your heart’s guidance changes everything.
One small step into hope changes everything.
One small shift from down-trodden to
The world you’re living in is a lie.
You can do this.
You can make a change and insist on joy again.
You can hold tight to feeling loved again
You can hold tight to finding yourself again
You can hold tight to being an example of courage for all the right reasons.
And finally find your truth.
I will help you each baby step of the way
Until you are free
And once again living your truth.
