New Feature: Sarah Ann Henderson

 

Today’s feature is Sarah Ann Henderson, a former contributor to End the Silence Campaign. Sarah has shared several poems on the website that explore her personal journey surviving sexual violence. This is her latest poem, “Outcry,” and she is proud to share it with you.

My body’s a breathing crime scene
I’ve known no other life

My memories are riddled with trauma
It’s a miracle that I survived

I live in a long-dead war zone
Flinching at threats that aren’t there…”

    Hi Sarah,
    I am a consumer advocate in mental health at the Royal Brisband and Women’s Hospital in Queensland, Australia. I read your poem “Better” and found it inspiring. Would you please give me permission to include it in a brochure on Recovery for our services user?
