Artist's Description


DESOLATE

The downward spiral brings with it
A vast emotional void
Desolate, barren

Faces that will not reveal
Mouths that will not speak
Of this sad and isolated place

The origins are unclear
The duration unknown
Quicksand for the soul

Poem © Jaeda DeWalt


ABOUT THIS IMAGE:
the meaning:
This is a deeply personal image for me, symbolizing the shame and silent suffering associated with surviving sexual abuse/incest.

I had to wade through the darkness of surviving, an abusive childhood, to come out into the light. I am happy to say i’ve arrived at a good place in my healing journey. This image, my words, they reflect a time and place, when things were very dark and the pain was difficult to navigate. Pain is a predator, if you run from it, it will hunt you down, face it and it will move through you . . . eventually.

Make your pain productive and you can turn tragedy into triumph.
