Voices of a Battered Soul #14: Burdened

A heavy weight

Crushing my spirit

Pressing on my heart

Hunching my shoulders

Slowing my stride

Dulling my eyes

Shrinking my smile

Watching me die

Just a little on the inside…

Battered Souls have endured a lifetime of abuse: emotional, verbal, physical, sexual, or even all of the above. This leaves behind scars, some of which never truly heal. Although a Battered Soul may find the strength and courage to move forward in life and discover happiness, many times the voices of their scars whisper to them late at night. This is a detailed account of the whispering voices of one such Battered Soul. If you are a Battered Soul, I hope you may find strength in knowing you are not alone in your suffering.

  1. I can’t almost, 100 percent confidently say, we’ve all been or have felt like a “battered soul” . The strength is what makes it endurable… and faith is what him/her still beautiful. We all have the ability to get up and move forward.

    1. It’s been a super rough weekend, honestly. But it feels good to channel it into words. It’s a release. Helps me to let some of it go.

        It’s what I’m here for, moral support and oddities.
