Innocence Of A Child - Poem by Allen Brodell

In the dark of night
you would come
in the silence
of the hour
you would serve
Satan your master
taking the innocence
of a child
destroying a child's life
denying the child
a normal adulthood!

Have you ever thought
of your actions?
what you were doing
by the lust
that controlled you?

Who gave you
the right to take
the child's innocence?
yes, you, who gave you
the right?

After many years
of emotional suffering
a child entered
into adulthood
God embraced
the adult in love

Forgiveness in Christ
becomes the words
in the heart
freedom in Christ
the prize received
The abuser of the child
are then forgiven

Abuser of the child
did you find
God's forgiveness
before you died
many years later
I hope dearly so!
