they would speak a thousand things

Poetry

Awake [Based on Isaiah 52:1-2]

 

Awake Awake O Captive Daughter

You have been loosed from your chains

Awake Awake He is waiting

To clothe you with strength and beauty

 

Awake and arise – you are free

Rise up – open your eyes

You are made clean

He’s restored you to life

Once bound – now redeemed

He paid the price

Arise – you are free!

 

Awake Awake O Beloved Daughter

Shake off the dust from your past

Awake Awake He is calling

Come be washed and made new

Awake and arise – you are free

Rise up – open your eyes

You are made clean

He’s restore you to life

Once bound – now redeemed

He paid the price

Arise – you are free!

 

 

You shall not be disgraced or ashamed

For you have power over your enemy

Your Savior has made you pure

Your soul can rest – His love is sure

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Awake Awake O Precious Daughter

Live as you were created to be

O Princess of the King

Awake and Arise

Step into your Destiny.


Betrayal – an acrostic poem

His heartbeat

Been friends a very long time, but

Even that didn’t stop your crime

Trust broken into nothingness

Reeling from the shamefulness of

All your rejection that leads to my pain

You lied and placed on me the blame

And turning to comfort in a knife, I take my

Life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was betrayed just like me

Every one of His friends left Him to die, but

Already He has paid the cost.

Remembering His sacrifice and

Trusting in Him is my only lifeline. My

Beating heart I have because of Christ, so

Even when all seems lost, I know

After He has cast my burdens far behind

The King stands in redeeming victory.


Her Story

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HER STORY is of bondage

a girl buried in her shame

no happy ending when you turn the page

the ink runs red with stains.

 

HER STORY is a lonely one

staring at the blades calling out

knowing soon the blood will come

too many tears to count.

 

a picture paints a thousand words

her scene is dull and grey

streams of blood flow from her arms

each day is more of the same

knowing only she is to blame

will she ever be whole

she asks, will my life ever change?

 

in HER STORY she dreams of HOPE

a life she never conceived

but pain overwhelms ‘til she can’t cope

falling to her knees begging please – help!

 

a picture paints a thousand words

her scene was dull and grey

streams of tears flow from her eyes

release from the pain of past years

she learned that she could never pay

the price required – He died in her place

now He writes HER STORY by His GRACE

Cling

When you are brokenhearted

When you are ashamed

When you’re hanging by a thread

When you are completely broken

Cling to Christ

 

He is solid to the core

I am dependent more and more

I am broken like the least of these

But He is ever faithful for me

I cling to Christ

 

When there are problems all around

When you are deep in distress

When you’re dying to be found

When you’re without a hope for life

Cling to Christ

 

He is solid to the core

I am dependent more and more

I am broken like the least of these

But He is ever faithful for me

I cling to Christ

 

Cling to Him and you will see

His love will set you free

From all the hurts you’ve ever known

Cling to Christ

He will wrap his arms around

You will feel his presence surround

Be amazed at his grace for you

As you cling to Christ

He will never let go of you.


My Obsession

Watch and be utterly amazed

Wonder and be astounded

Marvel at the majesty

Rebel against the flood of lies

Become obsessed with the love of Christ

He is my obsession

As love invades my life

I can’t use any discretion

Tell the whole world of Him

Filled with intense passion

He is my obsession

Experiencing His presence – I’m dazed

It begins to blow my mind

Revel in His grace for me

Rebel against the flood of lies

Become obsessed with the love of Christ

He is my obsession

As love invades my life

I can’t use any discretion

Tell the whole world of Him

Filled with intense passion

He is my obsession

I’m obsessed

And I can’t control

I cannot rest

Overflowing with grace

Rebel against the flood of lies

Become obsessed with the love of Christ.


My Soul Despairs

 

I am confined within this prison

Of my desperate, tortured heart and mind

Been abandoned by everyone

I had trusted to be kind

 

My voice is without a song

All my hurt lingers on

Pain envelopes my very being

When everyone I loved is leaving

My soul despairs

How can I change when all I feel is numb?

 

I am held hostage inside myself

In need of a knight to come and save me

Because I cannot escape this life in Hell

Will I be able to give someone my story?

 

My voice is without a song

All my hurt lingers on

Pain envelopes my very being

When everyone I loved is leaving

My soul despairs

When will I live if my life is over and done?

 

They say time and distance change you

But all I have is a knife spilling my blood

Just need to hear the cut sing true

In my skin cause I have no love or past

Can’t stop when everything is fading fast

Do I even give a care?

My soul despairs


What is a SCAR?

How will you know I am hurting,
If you cannot see my pain?
To wear it on my body
Tells what words cannot explain.
–C. Blount (English deistic writer) [1654-1693]

Scars are the results of the natural healing processes of the body; which occurs when the body suffers and injury. The body’s defenses rush to save the injury, and as the injury heals, scars form. In fact, the skin does not heal exactly the same as it was before. Scar tissue is inferior to normal skin because scars are flat and lightly colored as a result of less access to blood, sweat glands are damaged or destroyed, hair doesn’t grow back there, and there is less resistance to ultraviolet radiation. Scars form as the result of injury to the dermis, a layer of skin that is deep and sensitive. Collagen fibers surge to the injury when damage to the dermis layer of the skin occurs.

“It’s not so much how deep a wound is that determines whether a scar will worm, but rather the location of the wound and that person’s genetic tendency to form scars” says Brian Flyer, a doctor from California. The type of scar that will form depends also on the person’s age, heredity, sex, nutrition, and of course the severity of the wound.

There are several types of scars:

1.      Hypertrophic: raised and often red lump on the skin, form when wound is under tension thereby raising the healing tissue; occurs when there is an overproduction of collagen.

2.      Keloidal: like hypertrophic but more serious because they can continue growing into a large neoplasm, spread beyond the boundaries of the original injury, raised hard growth that forms because some bodies rush in a lot of collagen to the injured site and the healing tissue is more than is required; can occur on anyone, but are more common in dark-skinned people.

3.      Atrophic: opposite of hypertrophic and keloidal, leaves depressions in the skin, these are sunken recesses in the skin which have a pitted appearance, caused when underlying structures such as fat or muscle are lost so they cannot support the skin; associated with acne, chickenpox, surgery, and accidents.

4.      Acne: pitting caused by the stretching of pores, aka atrophic

5.      Contracture: flat, tight scars that constrict movement, often caused by burns

6.      Stretch marks: caused when skins is stretched rapidly (such as during pregnancy) or put under tension during healing process (near joints); usually improves in appearance after a few years.

Scars can never be completely removed; there are supplements such as vitamin E and creams to help speed the healing process of scars, but they will never completely go away. There are surgeries available to remove scars but often the surgery will produce another scar and there is no guarantee the former scar will be less obvious. Topical treatments, radiotherapy, steroids, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and injections of collagen are other options to rid the body of scars. There are many methods to treat scars as well; however, even with all these methods, there is no way to absolutely remove a scar.
