I'm nervous about including this collage on the web. It's one of my first attempts at collage and it represents what I was dealing with at the time around the sexual abuse I experienced as a child. It's very raw, both in execution and in the feelings it exposes. Up until now, it's been hidden away in a journal that I had purchased to use for this kind of expression. There are collages that are even more painful to look at, but I'm not sure I'm ready to include those here yet. If nothing else I wanted to post this to make my "secret shame" less secret--after all, it wasn't my shame to begin with.
