Shifting to Freedom by Marlene Cheng
to escape from fear, pain, horrendous manic depressive mood swings, and hallucinations, dissociates,
crossing invisible barriers to become ‘alter’nate personalities.
Her life, heartrending in sadness, constantly threatens to become unraveled.
Her tenuous hope for recovery is as fragile as her emotions.
Shattering is her constant fear.
We hear her cry from the darkness, tears we cannot stop,
but we hold on to what we can—hope.
