20-07-09 21:36 PM (CEST). I have written a song in Swedish that is based on one of my earlier poems. It’s from a sad part of my life that I still need healing from. A friend made the instrumental sound and also the singing. I am very thankful because he put the feelings into tones. It will soon be published here on my web.
This song is dedicated to men and women who live in relationships with abuse and stalking. And if there are children involved who are affected too of course. That is the most important. Abuse can affect both men, women and children. It’s common to feel guilt. Being exposed to abuse are in some cases associated with feelings of shame. We all need to be a part of changing that.
I wrote this song in the spring of 2020. The poem I wrote in the summer of 2016. I used to be in a relationship where I was periodically subjected to violence. Physically, psychologically and latently. I have felt a lot of fear since then. It has affected me a lot. My mercy is that I have no feelings for him anymore. It’s always harder if you do I guess. Don’t go back. You are worth a life of peace. Peace.
Sometimes there is an explanation for the abuse. Tragic and trauma has sometimes been a part of the abusers life too. It’s not an excuse. Not even a reason. It’s just sad. We need authorities in Sweden to help to handle all this things. All of the things based on the current situation.
It’s not always easy to forgive and healing sometimes takes time. We all do wrong. We are humans. I am not perfect either. Who is perfect? With forgiveness comes freedom. I believe that. There is always a new beginning for someone. Stalking, harassment, threatening and violence is never okey though. Never.
I pray for better times. I have hope in my heart.
