Overcoming the Past

She was so young and trusting
that year the boys
led her to the secret place
and took her innocence.

After that her heart
ceased to live
and a thick hard shell
covered up her secret.

For a lifetime she labored,
spinning herself quietly
into a tight cocoon,
fearful of the light.

Until Jesus beckoned so brightly
He couldn't be ignored,
cracking the darkness,
uncovering her shame.

It wasn't her fault.
This settled her soul
and she began to believe
and determined to fly.

Patiently unraveling the layers,
she stepped hesitantly out
before spreading her wings,
soaring towards the sun.
