Survivor Psalm

Survivor Psalm
by Frank Ochberg, MD

I have been victimized.
I was in a fight that was
not a fair fight.

I did not ask for the fight.

I lost.

There is no shame in losing
such fights.

I have reached the stage of
survivor and am no longer a
slave of victim status.

I look back with sadness
rather than hate.
I look forward with hope
rather than despair.

I may never forget, but I need
not constantly remember.

I was a victim.
I am a survivor.
