( Trigger Warning: Please note that the following poem is a raw and real release, kindly skip this post if you are not comfortable with reading triggering phrases )
To the man who gaslit me,
To the man who ghosted me,
You are no longer in control my thoughts even though you once consumed me.
To the man who hit me,
To the man who raped me,
You will never own my spirit even though you broke my body.
To the woman who violated me,
To the woman who demeaned me,
May you learn from my coldness, grow from my absence, and never again control another.
To the people who raised their voices,
To the people who ran to their keyboards,
May you face your foes in person, may you know true dialogue, and the art of real argument.
I have committed many errs,
I have made many mistakes,
My vow is to continuous learning, growth, and being accountable for my wrongs.
Compassion is king, empathy is queen, and love is our ace in the hole.
A huge thank you to everyone for their loving support of this blog, and all my endeavours. And of course, for keeping the beer flowing.
