She came in as a woman that knew she was desired.

She could enter a room and smile at the heads that turned her way.

She was strong and knew where she wanted her life to go.

One day she encountered someone that wanted more than just to desire her.

Her thoughts turned to shame.

Her strength turned into weakness.

Her life was no longer hers.

With time she found that it wasn’t her or her body or her beauty.

It was just a beast that found her and his opportunity.

She now takes what happened and turns it into even more strength than she ever had before.

She walks with pride that she beat what happened.

She lives her life as if she was reborn and now helps others find who and what they really are.
