After enduring some terrible abuse in my childhood (not at the hands of my parents) I turned to poetry as a way of expressing my feelings and helping me heal. I suppose, like King David, poetry and song for me was one of the only ways I found to cope with fear, anger, hurt, and sometimes debilitating depression. Anyway, I was going through some boxes today and came across a folder filled with poetry I wrote over a span of about twenty years and I thought I'd share some here. God used words to heal my very troubled heart so maybe He can use those same words to help someone else.
