Protection (Poem)

Stepped out the door without protection,

Endured the harsh words for years,

There was nowhere to go for protection,

I held in the pain for years,

It became hard to breathe without protection.


I broke when adulthood came,

I was no longer forced to do what I didn’t want to do,

Over and over the panic attacks came,

I was released from the adults that constantly told me what to do,

Yet in my adulthood, I also begged for a protection that never came.


Phobias took over while I hid from the world,

I didn’t realize that I was my own protection,

Until I got tired of hiding from the world,

Thus, I chose to face the world and become my own protection,

One by one the phobias were let go and I saw a less scary world.
