  1. Purple Flowers.

    Purple is the color for survivors and for campaigns to increase awareness about sexual violence and abuse.

    With its origins tied to royalty, purple flowers symbolise dignity, pride and success, and  represent accomplishment and admiration. These themes beautifully describe Chloe’s journey from fear and loss to victory and celebration after sexual trauma.

    Purple Flowers

    By Chloe.


    Purple flowers,

    Stand to the hours

    Of the “No”s ­

    And the fear.


    Purple flowers

    Acknowledge the loss,

    From the unexpected

    Battle of nightmares.


    Purple flowers

    Speak in colour,

    Out of the silence

    In monochrome.


    They do not apologise

    For falling

    Where no place to fall

    Should have been.


    Purple flowers

    Rise in celebration

    Of my victory

    Within this story.


    They lay unashamed

    Of vulnerability,

    With both ability

    To break

    And to heal.


    Purple flowers speak

    Of the scars that remain,

    And the path that has led

    To the person I became.


    Purple flowers

    Stand to the day,

    When I realised

    This was not the end.
