Arms Open Wide

She’s a user, an abuser
Looks used and abused
Beaten and beat
Black sunken eyes
Lips swollen
Broken ribs
Palm slits
There’s no telling how far she’ll get

But in His eyes she’s beautiful
Huggable, a darling
He forgives and forgets
Her cries He always accepts
For in His eyes
She’s His child
For her His arms will always open wide
