I ask for your strength today.
You see – I escaped a few days ago, as you know.
But… I am scared, I am stressed, I am afraid.
I don’t know what to do, or don’t know what my future holds, or where I am going.
I just know I got out, thank goodness.
I am out of the horror that I faced each day, since I have been married.
I am out of the daily beatings.
I am out of the trauma.
I am out of the constant sadness and despair.
I hope for a future of kindness, of compassion, of happiness, of dreams, of living.
The only thing that matters is that I am alive.
I just need strength to move forward.
I know I will have to face him again, in court, so I pray for strength.
Please get me through this, one step and one day at a time.
No name, just praying.
