It's never too late to begin the healing process from childhood sexual abuse. It's never too early to fall in love with the person God created you to be. Long ago someone made a choice to take away your innocence, but today that someone can't touch your freedom to heal.

Tamar's Redemption Tuesdays, Kimmy's Song

During this week of thanksgiving, we celebrate with Kimmy Bennett, who has found her voice and sings her song so poignantly in the following poem.

    Touch of Innocence
    by Kimmy Bennett 

                                                              My sweet princess needed so little,
                                                              A hug around her waist
                                                              But deserved so much more.

                                                              She gleamed with innocence,
                                                              A smile on her lips
                                                              And perceived no harm.

                                                              My little angel craved attention,
                                                              A kiss on her cheek
                                                              And accepted his tending.

                                                              She took delight in his offerings,
                                                              A laugh from her tummy
                                                              But was not aware of his misbehavior.

                                                              My little girl loved him,
                                                              A touch of her soul
                                                              So protected his secret.

                                                              She is now aware of her trauma,
                                                              A tear from her eye
                                                              And seeks to tell the truth.

                                                              My precious child exists in me,
                                                              A piece of my heart
                                                              Yet continues to be a strong woman.

                                                               I am admired for my strength,
                                                               A song from my mouth
                                                               For reclaiming my own power.
