Abuse comes in many different shapes and forms ranging on the spectrum from psychological to verbal to physical. Abuse can manifest in many different ways but it is always about controlling the victim. . It is insidious. It creeps into lives and destroys them. It is a cycle that self-perpetuates and it is hard to break. It takes generations to rebuild the lives destroyed. It takes grace and forgiveness to heal. And no lifetime is long enough to move beyond the effects of abuse.

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
