The little girl inside of me
has been screaming throughout my lifetime

And it has taken me this long
to know
to gain the tools to access
to finally give her
what she has so desperately needed

I believe her
her voice, her language, her memories
the pieces she has been able to string together
and I believe her firmly enough
to stand my ground

I will protect her
she doesn’t have to go back there

I will protect her
I won’t pretend that the dragons are illusions

I will protect her
and invite her out to play
