There’s no escaping the horrors of the past…
I’ve felt it all, endured it all,
And I’m still standing.
Tattered, torn, nearly destroyed,
But I’m still going,
With a good job and stable relationship.
But the truth of his murder sends me into a tailspin,
A downward spiral of agony and hurt.
He was my brother, my protector,
Suddenly, I’m struggling for safety, searching for survival,
And ready to destroy whoever took him from me.
For now, I’m Sophie Shields and this is my tragedy.
