"This is what it is, this is who I am
This is where I finally take my stand
I didn't wanna fall but I about to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands"

-Newsboys, Born Again


The love I never thought true is given by you
You love me so, and you want me to know
That you have a plan, and its there in your hand
The plans aren't to hurt me, and of course, one day I'll see
How much of a fool I was, such a fool
Drowning in the pool, oh the pool
Of the ever-forsaking world
Ya, I'm a misfit, sure I'm a nitwit
But I have a purpose, and I gotta learn it.
The answer is not hate, that's not my fate
My purpose is through you, only then, is is true
But your enemy says, Yup, of course its okay
Slay yourself in vein
Cause yourself so much pain.
Abandon the One who loves you
And anyone else who does too
Just you against the world
Here's the knife, go ahead
From then, I bled and I bled
Motivated by hatred of myself
Powered by Satan's wicked stealth
But then, you tell me Stop! No! There's a place for you so
Rest your head and know
That i love you so much, oh so
And you don't have a clue
What's planned for you
So you take away my knives, my pain, and self-hate
And tell me its not to late
To save me from the enemy
And more so, to save me from me
So, in your arms, I'll tell
The story of how I once fell
And it'll change many lives
Clear away all their knives
The blood, the hate
Let them know You're the Gate
They'll hear how you saved me from darkness and pain
And now, how nothing I do is in vein
Jesus, now my life's nearly complete
and Lord, I'll prolong, right where I belong
Right here, at your feet
I'll serve you for eternity
Because you do something amazing
You love me


The author's comments:
I used to be what you would call, an emo.I cut myself for fun, and now, I still have scars. The fun turned into self-hate, and soon, I realized, I was doing exactly what the Devil wanted me to. But then, I went to this camp, and got where I belong, at the feet of Jesus :)Now, I don't cut myself anymore, and the scars are painful reminders of what once was me.
