where my lips can’t speak
Looking to put a name to the face of the deepest hurt within me, beneaththesewounds comes from the concept of the hurt under the hurt. Scars are maps that remind us where we came from-they tell our story. Our outer flesh may heal, but what lies underneath that? What lies beneath the wound?
While the past five years I’ve begun to open up and use the pain within my testimony for a greater purpose, there are still aspects of my life that still continue to hurt that I’ve hidden for the sake of those around me and my shame. For a long time, I suffered and felt like a slave to my pain. I struggled to express my hurt to others and coped with my pain through self-harm. But writing helped me put my words together. beneaththesewounds allows me to share both the good and bad of my seasons in a way that the other parts of my blog cannot.
I am not no master poet. I am a writer. I am a hurt-er. Some will like my style and the way I write, some won’t. Some will understand the context of my writing, once again, some won’t. All of these things are okay. Art doesn’t hold a specific form, it is not based on complexity. Art is always changing. Some of the most simple words tend to mean the most to us, such as “I love you”. I am inviting you into my life, into the deepest parts of me. And if you don’t like what you see, I only ask that you leave quietly and unknowingly.
I’m excited to share this part of my life with all of you.
