Empowering hug



Warm Tears slid down her -
slightly swollen eyes,
Across her puffy cheeks
Upon a shoulder of another
Standing there while the hug -
to clear her mind,
Rejuvenate her broken heart.
This was no ordinary hug -
the tears were cleansing her of THEM
The stench of fear and mistrust poured - out of her
No longer would she carry they're abuse
The victim has won! and the abuser has lost.
She held no guilt, no pity, no regret
Her heart was empowered, capable, - passionate and
alive.
