You know those moments that break you.
Once you’ve escaped
Once you’ve recovered
You need to go back and claim it.
Those moments need to be owned and presented proudly with all your other trophies.
The trophies of the trials that could not destroy you.
My biggest trophies took me years to claim.
The slow walk back towards all that pain.
In the end only I remain so I dub these trials with new names.
The pain no longer sustains.
These trophies are now mine to claim.
