    Broken Soul

    This poem that I wrote is based on a past experience due to mental and physical abuse that broke me into pieces. As I've gotten older I've been able to heal and learn how to forgive those who have harm. I wanted to share this poem because there are a lot of people who have been involved in a abusive situation. The goal for writing this poem is to let those people know that they are not a lone, and that if I can keep going in life after what happened to me then so can they.
