Redemption

To belong, 

To be loved,

To be heard, 

Each desire fights.

 

Human,

Self,

Me, 

I.

 

Unpure,

Unworthy,

Rejected,

Cast aside.

 

Tears drop,

Fear strikes deep,

Lies I bought,

Win...

 

Or so they thought. 

 

A hand reached down,

I take it,

Like a rope...

My hope. 

 

Lifted, not pulled,

Held, not pushed. 

Scarred hands,

Gently lead.

 

Healing came,

When I surrendered;

Scared hands

Took my scars of fear.

 

Offered joy,

Offered courage,

Offered love,

Offered hope.

 

A gift is given;

Freedom. 

Know the price;

Accept the gift.
