He Set Me Free

He Set Me Free

A Poem by D. L. Hutson
"

Sexual Abuse

"

That which was stolen from me

I didn’t know how precious it was

Because

no one ever told me

What it really was

But now the situation is

That which was stolen

I now give it away

like giving candy to a baby

Or a child

With a smile all the while

I'm Feeling not worthwhile

Wanting relief

And to make the moment brief

But each time I give it away

Myself, I betray

This is not who I am

But I have to stick with the program

I can’t quit

I have to admit

I feel just like an addict

Each time wanting more and more

But realizing, I can’t ignore

The way it’s making me feel

It’s all so unreal

But I know

That which was my treasure

Is now like an anchor

On my soul

I Try to bury it deeper

But its like a cancer

Killing me, killing me

Over and over again

Each time I try to win

A piece of myself back

I get pulled back

sucked back

Like a vacuum sucking

DIRT

Is what I feel like

Can I ever become clean like

JESUS- godlike

And not the way I really feel-

rug-like

Voices telling me I'm no good

.

I'm the w***e of Babylon

To the devil I belong

And I don't deserve anything good

But My spirit longs for something more

So I began to explore

There's something going on within me,

I can’t ignore

My eyes began to well up

And I’m on the floor

On my knees

Something rising up within me

Everything within that I buried deep

Is now coming out in a heap

What is happening to me

Light all around

I can’t see

Trying to focus

On that Something in the background

When I should look up

And see my Saviour looking down at me

With hands out, beckoning me

What is going on I ask

I’m cleansing you is what he said to me

I’m setting you free

And just so you know

That which was stolen from you

So long ago

Was never my plan for you

But I knew

Because of my love for you

I wanted to make things better for you

I didn't make that happen

But I know the world you live in

And all the sickness in peoples hearts

I knew your innocense would be taken

because of the circumstances

you were in

But afterwards I wanted so bad to come to you

But you never called

You decided to go your own way

Do things contrary to my way

But I knew it would bring you here

To this day

Kneeling before me now

so my child I say

It’s all good

And all this will be used

To bring glory to me

Cause everyone will see

You were bound and now your free

You were blind and now you see

And you now belong to me

And now I can barely remember the old me

Cause Im no longer that person I used to be

I used to wonder

If there ever was a God

Where could he be

And if he is

how can he let this happen

Over and over again to me

Different people, same old thing

And each time that person goes free

But not me

Cause Each time, I’m a little bit more

Chained up

Each time, a little bit more

Prisoned up

diced up

Bawled up

And thrown away so I just want to give up

to go within myself

Or kill myself

Bring it all to an end

But now you’re here lifting me

Making me feel like quality

Cleansing me

restoring me making me feel whole

So Now, I really know

And I can see

I AM the Lord’s

And he set me free

Free to forgive others

and free to forgive me

Author's Note

D. L. Hutson
This poem is about sexual abuse and what it can do to you and how it can make you feel
But its not the end, the Lord can come in and cleanse and restore you. Everything that happens in life that is not good is not our Lords' fault.

Dee, this is just beautiful. What a marvelous picture of His love and how he picks us up out of the pit we were once in, cleans us up and then restores everything we lost with his restoring power and cleansing. I would have never made it without Him. I still wouldn't. I am so thankful and sometimes, all I can do is praise Him. You have painted a beautiful picture here of the before and after, and my hat is off to you friend. Very well written. (((Hugs))), Carole

I agree with your sentiments about God. It's really nice to know there are people out there proud enough to say they depend on God. Thanks for sharing this poem here. It flows well, means so much and is quite inspirational.

Keep Writing. ^__^

If the Son Sets You Free �

John 8:31-32 (The Message)

31-32 Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you."

Your emotional testimony, sharing and faith, highlights the power of His Almighty grace, which overcomes all strongholds and adversities; and, through His divine authority, all things work out for us according to His plans.
