Spreading Her Wings

She was so young and trusting
that year the boys
led her to the attic room
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 Truth 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.
As Jesus unraveled the layers,
she stepped hesitantly out
before spreading her wings,
soaring toward the sun.


  1. (((((Peggy))))) That is a huge hug by the way. I'm crying for that innocent, precious little girl but feeling heartened to read of the healing and grace received...

    May God continue to bless you. You are such a beautiful soul.

  2. I'm so thankful for His redemptive power for those of us (all of us) who are broken in different ways. God bless you sister.
