A Poem For Those Abused Within Christianity. ‘Dear Victims – My Heart Is For You’


This poem is in response to the Royal Commission and all the masses of abuse – which will only be a fraction of what has actually occurred throughout Christianity.

I am deeply upset and deeply grieve the lack of compassion and lack of speaking up by Christians, who are far more intent on reputation, monetary concerns and applying ‘cheap grace’, than protecting children and women.

Dear Victims – My Heart Is For You

Grieves my deeply sad heart
Many children and women
Not protected, or guarded
By those who should

Sex offenders rights
Society’s priority
Christianity worse
Cheap grace their excuse

I fear this world
Where sin and evil
Can sink within
Even many good people

Satan sure knows how
To manipulate many
His black evilness
Seducing so easily

I hate a world
Protecting those who harm
More than knowing the need
To protect the vulnerable

I hate evil
I hate sin
I hate abuse
I hate lack of wisdom

I move further from
Organised Christianity
I trust them not
And fear them greatly

The massive abuses
Covered up and enabled
‘The church doesn’t have much to say’
Until forced by the Royal Commission

Abuse known, goes on far too much
Known, enabled, condoned, harboured
I weep for this knowledge
I almost wish I didn’t have

I am angry and grieve this world
For society and Christianity
But mostly I grieve
For all of their victims

My heart and soul
Cries for every child, every woman
Deeply harmed and abused
Their lives ruined, by this evilness.

My heart is solely for you
And I apologise for Christianity
It failed you badly
And they have no excuse

Please know this is not of God
It is of evil
Jesus weeps with us
He will be angry too.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
