Beautiful Daughter of God


Caged bird,

How lovely were

once your wings

now torn from misuse.


You are abused;

treated like something

less than human.  


Your life is a prison-

you are reduced

to someone’s slave.


Your pain is

another’s pleasure;

your body is broken,

beautiful daughter of God.


You have been

robbed of your innocence,

but God will restore you.


He reaches down

to rescue you from this place

and bring you home

into His gentle arms.
