Stolen Innocence

I debated whether I should post this poem–it was raw and painful to write. But if it helps one person to not feel so alone in their pain, then it is worth sharing. Statistics say that one in five girls and one in 2o boys endure child sexual abuse.…

Seeking Solace

Seeking the solace of God But finding no rest Leaves me feeling empty Not sure I can stand the test Lord can you hear me In the midst of the world’s pain? I know I am being selfish But I have nothing left to gain All I want is peace within That silences the devils…

Peace Before Light

Keeping the demons at bay As the night slips away  Hoping that the dark of night Gives way to peace before light Seeking the Almighty’s cover As memories try to hover Knowing a past of pain Has already left its stain There is nowhere to hide When the terror lives inside So I must lay…

devil licking at my heels

Utter despair Allotted nothing –This is it— The devil licking at my heels Dragging me into the pit All I’m left with is My tears and Jesus Wails of despair  screams in the shadows Wrestling till I see the morn And I am still here

From Broken to Beloved

Broken, abused,  soul’s been crushed -But this will NOT be how my story ends- Empowered by the Almighty, I start to release the pain and my scars are fading….

I’m Still Here

Shattered Goodbye

I’m finished with broken promises No more selfish pleas and shameful demands  You will never be the man you should be Disappointed, my heart is draped in sorrow And the agony stomps out my hope -I just can’t keep doing this- Ripped apart from my soul my dignity dissolves Each vile touch splintered my heart…

Wounded heart

I’m torn apart Gathering the pieces As the darkness buries me Tears saturate the night Drowning all hope No use to fight it The pain never ends For this worthless soul

Horrors in the Night

Piercing the peace in my heart Horror marches into my night Ancient memories follow in Bringing the monster sulking in the shadows   Drowning feverishly in a glass Until his misty eyes grow dim Only if this would have stilled his hands And kept his body off me   Oh Lord protect my soul When…
