of your abuse, lies, and insults.
I grow stronger everyday with
love, laughter, and comfort.
Oh God, I couldn't believe life
could be this amazing.
All I had to do was break free.
All I had to do was break away from you.
Rachel was abused by her ex-boyfriend for a year until she got the courage to stand up to him. Ever since, her life has been so much easier and care-free. She hopes this poem might shed light on some people who are going through something similar and that someone might feel enlightened to break off their own abusive relationship.
