Shy one, open up your heart,

You don’t need to hang your head;

Life was cruel from the start,

From a wicked hand you fed.

Know that what you learned back then

Doesn’t represent the Truth;

You will need to learn again

From teachers wise and less uncouth

That yours is value beyond gold,

Who you are is beautiful;

Your flesh to highest bidder sold,

But soul stayed free, and pliable.

 Bloom, sweet bud, embrace your life,

A pure and holy work of art;

Leave behind your pain and strife,

Your Maker holds your hurting heart.
