I was broken by this world, nothing more than shattered pieces of a being. The lies in my heart were like heavy weights pulling me farther and farther from you, pulling me underwater, drowning me. But you were stronger than the dark force dragging me under, could see through the black waters that were suffocating me with deception and obscuring your love. It wasn't until I was finally ready to stop fighting the inevitable darkness, ready to let it take me away, when you lifted my weights and taught me how to walk on those murky waters with you. "Daughter" you said as you pulled me into your embrace " You will never know how I suffered to save you, the pain I endured to end your's". "W-what do you mean?" I stammered, confused. You opened your hands so that I could see the holes in your palms. Then I noticed the identical ones on your feet, the scar in your side, the scourge marks all over your body, your bloodshot eyes caused by hours of sobbing and sleeplessness. "Abba, what happened? what did you do?" You embraced me again. " I saved you, child. I've broken down the wall keeping you from me, I died so that you can be mine, so that we will never be apart again".
