A Wounded Child and A Heavenly Father, A Poem

Updated: Dec 24, 2022

By Jelena Derosa

The screaming was loud,

it never seized to stop,

it was endless.

"You're worthless, I don't love you, you will never make it."

She hid under the blanket,

She prayed. "G-d, help me, I can't take it."

At school, they'd make fun of her too,

"She's so weird, she's so ugly, she doesn't belong here.

No matter how hard she tried to fit in, to be loved, to feel worthy, it was clear.

She would not find it here.

Not from her parents, not from anyone else, not even inside herself.

All the hateful words she heard, she kept that within her.

She truly believed them and when she looked in the mirror,

all she whispered was, "you don't deserve to be here."

Her traumas lie deep, she has to unlearn what she's seen and believed.

This poor little girl who's now 28, has a wounded child inside her head.

When she gets triggered, the little girl comes out,

she begs and cries for love and affection.

Sometimes she wonders if she'll ever heal

if she'll ever be fully loved and fulfilled.

Then, she remembers the one Father who will.

He's gotten her through this journey and always will.

Hashem, you are the ultimate healer and savior.

Thank you for your endless love, my Creator.
