walking out of darkness (written by Donna D and I)

Post by Gods.Daughter.1990 on Sat Aug 14, 2010 11:48 pm

She was held in bondage for so long
it made her feel she never belonged
She smiled to keep the tears away
And thought no one heard when she prayed.
She felt so alone in this place
her own family thought she was a disgrace.
But since she was a little girl
her innocence was stolen from her world
It tore her apart, her wings were broken
her pain she hid and left unspoken
No one believed her so she lost all hope
So she turned to cutting to cope.
Soon the blade become her bestfriend
because for awhile the pain would end
~*~
But then a whisper came upon the breeze
the voice of Love offering peace
it spoke of a world where joy could be found
a place within, called Holy Ground
She dared to listen, she dared to hope
though with fear and trembling she protected her soul
The voice of Love, it spoke her name
whispering to her, again and again
Private moments saw her upon her knees
a broken heart, the need to be free
and in her soul, where the voice could be heard
she longed to believe but feared greater hurt

~*~
She never felt she was worthy of love
Even the day she came to know God up above
But the walls she built around her heart
slowly came undone and fell apart.
It took alot for her to finally trust
after all the abuse and all the mistrust
The blade finally came to its end
The day she decided it was time to befriend.
It took alot of strength and courage to throw it away
And not depend on it day after day.
~*~
Jesus came and took her hand
touched her heart, gave her the strength to stand
He fed her soul with words of truth
opening her eyes to her own worth
He took away the chains that bound her to the past
revealed her true Self, renewed her heart
Words of love set her free
gave her the hope her wings need
Now she flies above and beyond times of old
no longer trapped in her own soul

~*~
She spreads her beautiful new wings
And has been given a voice to sing
As she walks down the path to freedom and hope
She no longer feels she needs cutting to cope.
So she wears a smile thats not fake but true
And has a heart thats no longer broken but restored and new.
~*~
Letting Gods grace fill her soul
Her life is no longer empty but starting to feel whole.
A new day has come, a new season is born
joy has come, no longer needs to mourn
it's time to dance, to live, laugh and love
all glory be given to our beloved God.

Wow its amazing how you can read over something you wrote years ago and gain a greater revelation. Though now, I read over this and wonder what has gone wrong since then, what happened to the girl at the end of this poem cause it certainly ain't me. :'(
