Pain from the Past

Why do you keep on hurting yourself?
You do not seem to realise
Every word, every action
The self-infliction does not end

Why not deal with all the brokenness inside
All the pain from the past
My dearest child I know it is not easy still it is worth it
Please hear the promise, I will be there every step of the way

Please turn to Me, take My hand
There would never again be the need to pretend
Your joy would be full
Peace always by your side.
