Scars

Jesus is the Only One
that I can safely lay my
head upon. He is the One,
Who like me, has walked
upon the troubled seas;
having too His best
of friends to hatefully
reject and forsake Him.
The pain; the pain
that within me lies, is deep,
very deep beneath
the soil of time; and yet,
there are times
it breathes and grieves
the pain of battered love;
of love knots, now undone.

Memories of abuse hands,
and actions so unkind, and
after all these many years,
this is what I find: You,
I can forgive, but the problem
that I see, is that I am so
embarrassed
that I gave you all of me.
Foolish and stupid,
a child full of belief,
thinking that you loved me,
is now my painful grief.
You are in the past.
You, I can let go; but how to
forgive me, of my stupidity,
I really do not know.

Scarred, to never trust again,
I've lived, but lived alone.
However, now I see, and
Jesus has to me a fact of
beauty shown, that He is
the One anyone can
trust, and so I will
draw close to Him
knowing that He will never
abuse, nor accuse,
nor will He ever be, a source
of searing shame for me.
To Him I can give all my love
with confidence secure
that His vow of love for me
is forever sure.

Lack of worth and scars of shame
stamped upon the lives of people
young, and people old, of husbands
and of wives, by those who have
a spirit of Control; supposing
they are themselves abused,
they become the Abuser; to keep
themselves from being used,
they become the User; devaluing
with despise all they say they love,
they are true to only one;
and clothed in their spirit of
Self-Centeredness
they sit upon their Throne,
never once aware
of all the harm they've done.

If any parent reader lives in an abusive relationship please know, this is not the soil in which healthy children grow.

Ramona: 05/31/2014

I know there are those who for me are embarrassed, and there are those who know of what I speak. We are the ones that should begin to shout about and out family abuse. There will always be the abusers, if, they have gentle persons willing to allow them the privilege.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
