Reclaimed life

There I was on my wedding day
Wondering if I was gay
An arranged bride
Nervously trying to hide
Behind her veil
My face as pale
As her dress
How did I get in this mess
Familiar face in the third row
We didn't know our love would grow
I dedicated my life
To my wife
Until death do us part
She remains in my heart
Just children doing the "right" thing
How could we begin
To understand
Fate has the upper hand

My abusers warnings stark
repeatedly dark
Remember the tree
Don't double cross me
Smiles in the front row
Talks of watching me grow
He set me up to fail
The girl behind the veil
Part of his plan
That's one sick man

A decade later sat smiling again
Taking joy in my pain
"Not his fault" I'm "a loser"
"Drug abuser " "Suicidal "
"In denial " "fa****"
"He tried to make me a man"
His master plan
I'm meant to be just like him
That thoughts grim
" You never could do as you were told"
Now I'm old
Feeling defeated
And he's elated
With the upper hand again
Causing more pain
Creating more memories that torture my night
I'm all out of fight
Or so I think
Pulled back from the brink
By fate
It wasn't to late
But just on time
Now my lifes mine
 
Not sure if this would work for you. But something like this for a title?

Because that is what I saw in your poem. Because of the struggle and then those final three lines:

It wasn't to late
But just on time
Now my lifes mine
 
The long and winding road of healing HL. Deeply moving... the journey you've been on for so long. I like the title Darren proposes. I know that is what you've been doing here and elsewhere in your life. I'm honored to share this space with you. Thanks for this...
