                 My body is precious to me worth more than silver and gold it's meant to be touched, caressed, and held. My body which God has made a stranger came along and stole it away.  He was more than a thief in the night, he took from me my body, my soul, and life. I'm left a hollow shell no longer amoung the living yet condemned to an adult hell. In fear of any man who I think will hurt me. My body is with me whereever I go but the ghosts of that night won't let go. My body which God has made is a temple to my womanhood. My body which God has made no longer will I run and hide, it's wasn't my fault I tryed my best to fight him off. I was a child what was I to do? my body which God has made no more a prisoner or any man's slave.   I'm free from the demon who stole my innocents. I was put on this earth to love and be loved. not another man taking my body and leave, laying on the bed battered and abused. This man wasn't foreign to me he was my lover, my king, my husband so to speak. What form of animal could do such a thing destroying in his path another human being?  Cause he thought with his penis withoout a worry of what it could do to my life.   My body which God has made 've returned from my shallow grave. A woman despite what a so called man took. I live, I love and one day will write a book. To let other women who've been raped know we're survivers we've escaped because of God's saving grace. I find freedom in the Father's wisedom for he has made me who I am. My body more Precious than silver and gold. Lord in Heaven make me whole. My body is my body no one can take it from me. Both men took my without me saying yes or no. My body which God has made I'm no man's prisoner or slave. My body is my body to give to someone in my life who will love me despite my past. My body is my jewel, my treasure. I will always care for protect and Love my body!!!
