The Deliverance Of A Child
There was a season of my life where there were wicked men
Always looking for a reason to accuse me whenever and then,
Their lust for violence and oppression was met with opportunity
The target of their own evil ways was a young boy and was me.
I endured such seasons of my life without the reasons of why
Many pools of terrible tears were filled as I sorrowfully did cry,
I learned to look upon all human males as the bullies and jerks
I learned to mask the pain with a smile that would hide the hurts.
I grew older and was able to escape this situation at long lasting
An ability to truly connect with others was elusive and fasting,
You would have never known it as I was always a talented actor
If I moved fast enough and acted tough, denial the benefactor.
Even though I was no longer in physical danger, the past remained
Like a spot of soil on a pure, white garment; my soul was stained,
I looked to the arms of many women to find a lasting absolution
As long as were having fun, this was but a temporary solution.
After I had come to the end of myself, I let out a wail and a cry
I asked the Lord to either take me home or thus to let me die,
He did neither and into my spirit spoke the words of His renewal
I was to study His words and make the Holy Bible a daily perusal.
I still do have not all of the answers to the questions from before
But I have gathered into my soul a treasure, a legacy and a store,
I cannot say for certain where it is that you are at on your journey
But I encourage you to daily keep the faith and to learn from me.
Cry out to the Lord Almighty, for He is near the hearts of the broken
Listen then intently to the words of life that He has to you spoken,
If you have small children someday, tell them of Jesus’ righteousness
Show them all of the love of God and then patiently, carefully bless!
