Because I Am Saved


I no longer live in that dreadful nightmare

Full of self hate, shame and blame

I will not waste another night crying

Or trying to forget the painful memories

I will not dwell on it any longer

Or be afraid

But move on with my life

I will live for what is ahead of me,

Not what happened and can't be changed

God would not have let this happened to me if there wasn't a reason

Maybe my reason is to help others

Teach them how to forgive and keep fighting

The memories are still horrible

But somewhat masked by my awakening

I am not completely healed yet

But at least I am on my way

I forgive you for doing something that horrible to me

At one point I was so lost and broken

I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror

But I can now

Because I am saved

A victim has to find solace some way and somehow, or the insanity of an act can drive them crazy. Very heartfelt and beautiful. Great Job!

Oh, how beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing in this awesome poem. I know I had to deal with a lot of unforgiveness in my heart, and when I finally did, He set me free to be who it is He would have me to be. Praise Him. God bless you dear one for writing this thought-provoking and honest piece. The video is awesome as well, along with the beautiful photo of beautiful you! Voted Way Up to the Heavens. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Touching. My heart was blown open almost 7 years ago when I became saved. The Lord came to me and showed me that he was real.......and that I was a beloved son of his. Thanks for the great reminder of his grace. This was very well written and I'm voting up for it. You are a powerful writer prettynutjob.
