I have been hurt so many times, By everyone that I trusted, I had no trust when you came along, And I couldn't believe that your wanted to help me, I judged you by the harm done by others, Not truly giving you a chance to prove you intentions, I rejected you before getting to know you, Listening to the fearful thoughts that bombarded my mind, I am skeptical, I am suspicious, As opportunity would afford; you showed your gentle love to me, Giving it to me a little at a time, My nerves calming and my skin warming, I became more aware of you, Your consistent gentleness and faithful patience, It began to sink into my mind, Could I be wrong about you? Who would invest the time and effort in someone they truly hated? Who would endure the abusive rejection over and over in such unconditional love? Who would be so kind to their abuser? When they constantly used you as the blame for their misery? But you knew I am a frail broken human. One that has been hurt to the point of self loathing, One that no longer believed in myself, But you know that you can heal me with the love that only you can provide, With the answers so ready upon your lips, I struggled against this love in fear, and in misunderstanding, The fight wore me thin and my stubbornness failed, I am now ready, Let your will be done over my own, The true beauty rests with the broken.
