AbuseConsultants.com is very
honored to post poetry and creative writings
from people who have survived some of the
hardest challenges in life. We believe that
ALL survivors have extremely important things
to say, and that the freedom of expression
of your own words, thoughts, feelings, heart,
soul, and life experience is a healthy way
of processing and a very important step
will be using the poetry and creative writings
posted on this site only as a means of therapeutic
expression, understanding and support. It
provides a safe way of “saying the
unspeakable,” of “telling without
telling,” and making your words viewable
to survivors throughout the world -- showing
that there are others out there that know
and understand, offering support, providing
hope, and saying what needs to be said.
poetry and creative writings posted on AbuseConsultants.com
will not be reproduced or sold. The writings
are intended only as website material, for
the benefit of the readers, and for the
benefit of the authors in gaining a sense
of mastery, self-expression, and healing.
note: Posting poetry on the web for the
world to see can be a powerful experience.
If this is your first time to put something
on the web, don't be surprised if you feel
a strong emotional response upon seeing
it on a site. That is a normal reaction!
Please be sure to process your feelings
submitting any writings, please be sure
that you are ready and safe enough to do

internal system and get a solid internal
agreement about which writings to submit

conflict or a backlash of self harm, do

Wait, and send them ONLY when there is internal
peace and a solid sense of readiness.
