Scarred Heart and Soul

Scarred heart and soul

I remember when I was a little girl

And bad things would come my way

I would close my eyes and pretend

If I couldn’t see, then neither could they

Of course it wasn’t true 

And they always saw me

as I grew up I  had to face it

So now I no longer flee

I don’t close my eyes and pretend anymore

But I close my heart and soul

The pain comes in waves of misery

It is too much, and this I know

It has bent and almost broke me

But there is a thread of glorious healing

And I have no shame or care at all

Should you see that I am kneeling

I ask for help from up above

For I know what faith can do

And faith is all I’ll ever have

To survive getting over you. 

It will take some time I know

And the pain will surely subside

But I will have learned once again

my heart and soul is scarred inside.
