Poem "Ex-Victim" from Bloom In the Dark book. All copyrights reserved.

I don’t want to admit I’m a “Victim”
Tainted by abuse
Feeling irrational fear and shame
Defensive and jaded
Frigid, stoic, rude
Rejecting before I get rejected

I don’t want to admit I’m a “Victim”
Who was too weak
To get away, to fight, to stop the pain
To stand up to the bully
Who killed my innocence
Who massacred my soul
 
I don’t want to be the “Victim”
Making mistakes
That cause more abuse
Broken choices that hurt me
I end up hurting others
Instead of stopping the pain
 
I want to stop being a “Victim”
Attracting predators
Accepting abuse as my due
Putting myself at risk
Choosing to trust the wrong ones
Who just pretend to protect

Jesus, help me stop being a “Victim”
You became a victim for me
You hung naked on the cross
You bore my shame
You were bruised for my iniquities
By Your stripes, I am healed
 
I am no longer a “Victim”
Forgiven of sin
With wholeness of heart
Redeemed, healed and loved
My innocence restored
My soul saved
 
I am now an “Ex-Victim”
I testify of His grace
I was lost but am found
I was shattered but am restored
I am filled with relentless love
I am sharing it with others just like me
