That is Enough is a poetry piece that the writer wanted published anonymously.  I encourage women to speak out, even if it means speaking out anonymously or under a surname.  This particular piece is about the struggles of "letting go," but knowing in your heart that it is the right thing to do.  Learning to cope is a part of the process.

The Locked Vault

Published March 18, 2011

The Locked Vault is about the aftermath of abuse. It's about the fear of trusting someone with your heart again. It takes so much time to heal and trust is something that doesn't come easily after a relationship of abuse. It's about the desire to want to never love again but the curiousity of what is out there...if you really could be loved by someone again.

I Took A Walk

Published March 11, 2011

I Took A Walk is a story of the loneliness you feel when you are victim of abuse. The lies you tell, the secrets you keep. The shame that keeps you from telling others what is really going on. It's a lonely road when you keep it inside. No one understands the turmoil within. And how would they? You don't tell anyone. You just go through the motions and present a pretty picture and give more life to the lie of abuse.

A creative writing short story by Christina Owens that we originally found on The Hotline's Blog.  We were so touched that we asked Christina personally if we could publish it here on The Compassion Fashion Project.  It's worth the read, especially if you are in a violent relationship.
