Afraid of Healing

In Their Own Words By Nathan Bond

Afraid to heal my deep wounds

Afraid life will be too simple

Afraid of missing the pain

Afraid I won’t have an excuse to disappear

Afraid I won’t need to scream at the top of my lungs when I’m too weak

Afraid I won’t grow without trauma

Afraid I’ll never be the same

I’m afraid of change

  1. Hear me when I say, I know this feelings/these feelings all too well:

    “Afraid I won’t grow without trauma

    Afraid I’ll never be the same

    I’m afraid of change”

    Peace, Angelique. I felt this poem and I thank you for sharing it.

  2. Reblogged this on A Cornered Gurl and commented:
    Who are we if we don’t know pain? If we don’t grow from it? I had to reblog this because I read it and it hit me and it stuck with me.

    Please visit the writer’s blog to comment there, should you want to. Peace.
