Behind the Mask
In a modern world, stigma and silence still exists around sensitive subjects such as child sexual abuse, despite more awareness in today's society. The multi-faceted layers of childhood trauma, mental health difficulties and hidden disabilities are frequently misunderstood or dismissed. Elizabeth Shane explores the complexities of trauma from her own experience to break down barriers around difficult conversations using a unique grasp of emotional, visual and symbolic language to broaden the possibility of creating a beautiful understanding of ourselves.
Your poems and prose are so incredibly profound and moving. I am sure they will provide very much needed comfort and solace to other victims of child abuse.
