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.
