Shattered: A Poem About Emotional Healing
Shattered is a poem that describes the pain of grieving losses from childhood trauma as defenses and illusions melt away. It expresses what the great psychotherapist Fritz Perls meant when he wrote: "To suffer one's death and be reborn is not easy."
It is lying all around me,
Traumatized children need adult intervention to heal and grow. When no such support is available, immature children must fend on their own as best they can. In the process, they will devise defenses, including illusions and mistaken beliefs, to cope with the trauma. These defenses frequently create problems in the long run. Therapy helps clients let go of these defenses and illusions in a safe and manageable setting - the therapeutic relationship - so healing from childhood trauma can progress.
