On shame…

Why do I appear to you as someone who’s ashamed?

Because I am deeply ashamed of the unspeakable things my dad did to my mom and to me when I was growing up…

I am ashamed of my family


My family wasn’t like yours… that is the story I carry

I protect you and your sweet loving family from people like me and mine

I protect you from mental sickness by holding the sickness inside me

I do this for you

Because I love you and want you to be well

So remember that next time you judge my shame
