RECLAIMING

MYSELF

LYNNDEL SCHUURMAN

Lynndel Schuurman's poetry reflects her personal journey of healing and self-reclamation from sexual abuse. She was once unable to express the words and pain verbally, and so poetry became the avenue of release that set her story free and released the debilitating pain and burden held within. Join Lynndel on this powerful journey of self-discovery that seeks to encourage you, instill hope, and help you as you reclaim yourself.
A Writer

A solitary woman
silenced by trauma
begins the journey
to reclaim her voice.
First a letter, a syllable, a word;
each dislodges, a crushing boulder
in the avalanche 
of guilt,
sham, rage and secrets
that bury her.
Courageously, she counters the unspeakable violence
by daring to express
the unsayable,
one pregnant phrase at a time.
Shewords
herself into life,
breathes deeply, freely,
and sings her song.
She recovers another silence;
innocent, pure, eloquent
that pitches its tent
in a fragrant meadow
just beyond the word.
