After darkness, always comes the light.
The darkness is where I’ve lived ever since they took me all those months ago. Dragging me into the shadows to play their sick and twisted games. I don’t know why they took me. They talk about an eye for an eye, but I don’t know these men. How can I be punished for a sin I know nothing about? A sin I didn’t commit.
They love to watch me suffer, they live to make my life hell. I thought my life was over.
He blazed through my darkness like a lightning bolt, shining through the void of nothingness. He was a force to be reckoned with.
They thought they’d broken me, that somehow they’d won. But they didn’t expect him. I know I never did. And now, my life will never be the same again.

They think they’ll break me.
They think I’m weak.
An eye for an eye they said, but this isn’t my atonement. How can you pay for a sin you never committed? A sin, the depths of which you know nothing about.
When will enough be enough?
For eight long, torturous months, they’ve used every evil, fucked-up trick in their books to make me crack and splinter. But I’m not made of glass, transparent and ready to shatter. They think they’ll crush me, but I’m already dead inside. I died on the day they took me, dragging me into the shadows to play with their demons. I’m not even fit to have the title of toy like the others. They call me the dog, but if they think I’ll ever be loyal, they’re wrong. I have teeth, and when the time is right, I’ll bite back.
They won’t hear my bark.
They won’t hear anything from me.
As children, we’re foolishly told that sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will never hurt us.
I have a new one.
Take my body, abuse me hour after hour. But with my voice, I hold all the power.
