Standing up to a Child Abuser

(Location Unknown)

Who do you think you are?

You try to tell me who to be!
You make up lies and tell me things,
Of people I don't want to be.
And once you realize this,
You'll realize I'm free.
From the troubles of this world,
To the contentment in my heart,
Maybe you'll see I've found a NEW place to start.
With my mind in control,
And my LORD above.
I've started my new life,
With bountiful love.
