Emotionally neglected

physically abused

Never really wanted

Unless sexually used

Once dubbed a beautiful disaster

A hurricane of the heart

So quick to make you smile

Before tearing that smile apart

Mistakes, believe I’ve made plenty

I still repent for the things I have done

But the past, at last, lays behind me

And I walk, for the first time, in the sun

Swimming in its warmth

Basking in its light

My darkness has been conquered

I made it through the night

I apologize to those I’ve sinned against

I forgive those who sinned against me

I see life and love just beyond the horizon

My soul sings out to me, “You are worthy.”
