Jemima Atar’s ‘you are safe now’ is a poetry collection about the trauma of sexual abuse and its emotional, physical, and spiritual aftereffects. Based on a combination of her own personal experiences and those of many other survivors she has spoken to, the author explores complementary themes. These include losing childhood and reconnecting to the inner child, the loss of faith and the reclamation of faith in oneself, and the journey from powerlessness and voicelessness to self-definition and finding the confidence to speak out. Throughout the book, Jemima tells her own and others’ stories through poems about suffering interspersed with poems about hope and healing, highlighting the non-linear nature of recovery, and how moments of growth can exist side-by-side with the hauntings of the past.
