I bear witness

I bear witness
to your suffering
to your pain
to your invisibility

The shame is with the perpetrator
It is not yours to carry
The disgrace is with the perpetrator
It is not yours to hold on to
The violation is with the perpetrator
It is not yours to keep

I bear witness
to your suffering
I bear witness
to your pain

You are no longer unseen.
Your dignity is just.
Your worth unquestionable.
Your place uncontested.

I see your light
I see your strength
I see your survival
I see your healing
You are the strength of your bones
You are the permanence of your heart
You are the power of your soul
You are the sanity of your mind

You are not alone
Never alone

*For Ada*
