There once was a child lost and alone;
she struggled with thoughts of having no home.
Darkness prevailed as life moved forward;
abuse and neglect were a part of her horror.
A house filled with sadness, sorrow and pain;
the normal would be to take on the shame.
Pain was afflicted by the ones who should love;
the truth of what happened wrapped tightly in a glove.
Generation to generation continues the cycle;
dysfunction keeps happening when we try to stifle.
Can’t hide the truth of what happened in the past;
speaking the truth of His love that will always last.
What man meant for evil – God intended for good;
He gets the glory when we don’t live in the should’s.
Victim no more to the shame and the past;
He sets us free of being downcast.
Turn to Him no matter the pain;
nothing to lose but everything to gain.
