If I Gave You A Penny? - Poem by Sandra jacks

If i gave a you a penny,
would you want two?

If i gave you a dollar,
would you want two?

if i gave you five dollars,
would you want ten?

How much money do I have to give,
will your heart still not mend?

If i gave you a million,
would that make your heart heal,
your past of being raped,
would it just disappear?

Would it take away your memory,
of being caught alone,
of growing up thinking,
that love was sex and sex was love,
thinking the word 'you're beautiful',
was very much enough,
to get you to want,
the very thing,
that destroyed you,
the very thing that employed you,
come away with me,
and then maybe you might see.

I could help,
and maybe God could help,
or..could he simply not?
the king of all kings?
simply not giving all he's go,
be enough.

I know you're father left you,
and that's the way you grew.
but maybe...
open your eyes?
and see he can heal you,
he can be the real truth?
