A Poem by Colton Warr

"And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness" secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name." Isaiah 45:3 

I heard a story of the most forsaken girl 
Born into a world of darkness 
She never had her own world 
Sold at a different type of market 

I heard a story of the most betrayed girl 
Sold off by her own father into the arms of the unknown 
What they did would make even the strongest of men cringe and curl 
Did their work and then cast her aside like a stone 

I heard a story of the most broken girl
What they did left her bruised and blind, decimated and deaf
A story of a cracked pearl 
But something intervened, a friend, a ref 

I heard a story of the most courageous woman
The true father intervened 
He said she could when she said she couldn't 
Once dirtied by the devil, the messiah has cleaned 

I heard a story of the most empowering woman
Now walking in the midst of the true faith
Hand in her fathers, she believed when others wouldn't 
It is now that she is saved 

I heard a story of the most enduring woman
Now she speaks her story to others 
Because we are all but only human
Her words a crusade for those who still suffer

I heard a story of the most precious girl 
She had been beautifully broken 
But I heard her sing, her voice rocked my world
I heard her sing, now God has spoken

Author's Note

Colton Warr
This poem tells the story of a girl I recently met a few days ago. She was sexually trafficked by her father. Abused and broken down, Blinded and deafened by a forceful overdose at the age of 2, literally caged by her father and only brought out when it was time for her to perform, you would think that there would be no hope, no light to runaway the encroaching darkness. But there was. I am not as religious as I probably should be, but hearing her story, and how broken and beaten down she was, and then hearing how she got back up, rose from the ashes and fire, and created a new life for herself with the help of God and an amazing ministry has changed me. This was the result of a rapid reaction from her telling me her story. When she finished, she picked up a guitar and started playing and singing for me. She had the voice of an Angel. I hope you guys enjoy!

I'm not a religious person, but I do believe that those who believe in 'god' gives them hope and strength to carry on when they need it most. A beautiful poem that touches the soul and is very emotional to read.. This poem for me highlights the importance of belief and how this helps to carry on and over come life and its struggles. Loved reading this poem! Most Excellent indeed!

I wish I had your faith. Someone to turn to when I am down. I just have a hard time believing in that which has no form. Does god forgive those are proof driven? I've done little hame in this world. Great poem.

This poem has moved me. The emotions behind your words were so real for me, that it almost looked like I was in her shoes. You are an amazing person, for you give the humanity that everyone believes in some hope and love. I am glad that she lives a 'human' life now, for she was being treated as an object. With this poem, you have made her existence more known the world. For she deserves to be treated as a human with an existent status. I hate traffickers, they are one of the most inhuman beings in the universe. They are the pure embodiment of evil. As long as there is hope, one can even recover from the most painful past. This poem is a masterpiece and it showed that you are one of the most talented human beings in the universe.

Good job :D
