Shonna

She loved and she trusted him and he hurt her. She was 5 years old when the first one sexually abused her. She told and no one believed her. It happened again at 8 years old, but a different man this time. She told, but no one heard her little voice. 

They took her innocence, they took her trust, they took her heart and in return, they gave her shame..

They changed her forever… 

She hasn’t recovered and frankly, she never will. She tries her best, but her world will never be how it should’ve have been. 

She’s works on herself. She attends counselling, and a twelve-step woman’s group and tries to trust herself, but it’s all been so hard. 

She is a work in progress, she knows that, but she is very proud of how far she has come and no one can ever take that away from her…
