LighthouseIn Honor of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

The Lighthouse

You put on a mask,

To cover your sinister glare.

Your intention was death,

Never play nice, never play fair.

Sneakily, you crept into the mind

Of an innocent girl.

Made false promises of

Comfort. Security. The world.

Swiftly and slyly, you dug

Your sharp nails in deep.

Taking over her mind,

You manipulated her body til weak.

Unable to discern between

His truth and your wicked lies.

She was thrust into your cage,

Becoming empty and hollow inside.

You laughed, oh, how you laughed

Because you thought you had won.

But wrong, oh, how wrong,

Because from the cage

The LIGHTHOUSE was born.

Determine and strong,

She arose from the anguish and fear.

Through the struggle and sorrow,

Her passion and purpose now clear.

She is the LIGHTHOUSE,

Guiding frail ships in the storm.

Alerting of treacherous danger,

Marking safe entries to shore.

Mighty she stands,

Tall for the world to see.

Her light beaming brightly,

A hope of recovery.


Lots of love,

  1.'David Tiner

    You are a light in the darkness. A light that is shining brightly. Not hidden under a bushel but like a city on a hill that is a refuge to all who struggle with this dreadful disease.
    The Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
    I Corinthians 1: 1
    I love you and am very proud of you, Kater,
