I couldn't put a face on this at the time,
because to me it was a crime.
My senses experienced the impact,
but my brain denied the fact.
For years suffering was delayed,
still for many years I've paid.
My mind stayed in the safety zone,
knowing facing up meant picking the bone.
Everytime similarities arose,
my mind would close.
After years of being stored in the freezer
life hit me hard with a final teaser.
My mind is fully awake now,
I'll finally face this thing somehow.
No more procrastination,
in facing a final summation.
Even though it hit with sudden impact,
I'm now mature enough to keep myself intact.
