    Suddenly the new kid

    I know not a soul yet

    Except for ones that torment

    Someone they’ve just barely met


    I make some friends later on

    But I’m not sure how real they are

    I’m insecure in my place with them

    Not feeling quite on par


    In high school now

    This one is really not my type

    I don’t fit in at all

    Not getting all the hype


    Eventually I have a close clique

    But hate them deep down

    Everyone else has great friends

    Only mine make me frown


    Finally – a group that I like

    But though we love to share

    They’ve all got their best friends

    I’m extra, just the spare


    Then my family decides

    To all but reject me

    Put down, pushed away

    I have no place to be


    Each wound is still fresh

    When it’s torn open some more

    Burned, whipped and stabbed

    Twisted ’til I’m so sore


    When it’s too much to take

    And I writhe in agony

    Unable to go on as I let

    The pain take over completely


    Sure that no one can ever

    Stitch up these gashes

    No bandage big enough for my bruises

    Or cream to soothe countless lashes


    Then I’m reminded of the One

    Who can fix all those parts

    He can smooth over my scars

    Because – He’s the true Healer of hearts.

    Esther…I’m tearing up…

    Your words speak of deep anguish and unreal resilience to rise above your pain, and heal by way of placing your broken heart in Hashem’s hands.

    This poem touches me. I relate so well to some parts of it…I was the new girl too…and the high school part…chills.

    You inspire me. Keep on writing!

    Whoa, this is painful! I can relate to a lot of it, too. Ouch. The end is so comforting and empowering. Thank you…
