Take down the masks. Unveil your soul.
To the broken child. The battered spouse. The war-torn soldier. This is a song that represents the fragmented soul that has experienced trauma and the impact that it has on mental, physical and emotional health.
I wrote Time as part of my efforts to support and encourage to those suffering from mental illness, whether depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder or suicidality. There is hope in the hopeless moments. There is love in the loneliness. There is no shame in acknowledging the pain and accepting the support on the road to recovery.
Time make take its toll. But time is also a healer.
Stay strong lovelies. We are not alone. We are survivors. We are warriors.
