I am thankful –

thankful I survived

the torture and the lies

When I look into their eyes

I am thankful-

the scars across my soul

mark all the times I let go-

to grab a hold of


the balm of Gilead soothes my mind

in the night

I am thankful

looking from here to there

across time

shivers crawl across my skin

memories close in

pull me under

no longer can they hold me down

long enough to watch me drown

I am thankful

day and night

for holy intervention on a drug filled night

screams no one can hear

lungs on fire

tears unleased

Here I am

All these years later


in the valley of the shadow of death

streams flow

flowers bloom

and I am thankful.
