'I found these poems to be inspirational and powerful. They reflect the integrity of a lived experience, and as such they demonstrate an authentic and vital theology. I hope they may bring insight and help to others facing a similar life journey.' Rev. Russell Davies Uniting Church Australia A Child of God An adult must always be kind When dealing with a childs mind For the messages a child receives Can for a whole lifetime, deceive The adult the child becomes Or The messages a child receives Can enable the child to perceive Blessings all through life For it is a life-long battle to conceive The small miracles in our lives But For damaged adults There is hope From someone higher than the Pope Into His arms Christ will receive To teach Truth and never deceive The child the adult becomes As a child of God

Author Biography

Jill OBrien has been a patient of mine for many years. She has been in therapy for severe trauma that she experienced in her early life. Despite the multiple traumas being pervasive and catastrophic, with recurrent sexual, physical and emotional abuse, which have left significant psychiatric marks on her, she has continued to work through this in therapy, and has indeed continued to strengthen psychologically through the years. Hers has been a journey littered with minefields, enough to destroy anyone else with lesser tenacity, strength, perceptiveness and insight. Through it all, she has held on to a gentle dignity. In addition, she has had a quiet but strong spirituality over many years, with her Christian faith holding her steady, when at times it seemed that her world was torn apart. Despite her suffering, she has sought to heal through writing poetry, which is at once personal, honest and inspirational. Through much of her poetry she expresses the healing she has found through her Christian faith. With some trepidation and caution, she now seeks an opportunity to share some of this poetry with others, in the hope that they might also find some healing.
