Fred Small is a folk guitarist who sings some really powerful songs. His lyrics are very powerful. My favorites are "I Will Stand Fast" on the album of the same name. He also has a song on his Jaguar album entitled "Light in the Hall" The latter song is introduced by sexual abuse survivors.

I Will Stand Fast
The echoes of childhood whisper violence
Cold wind beating out of the past
Rage in your throat, muffled silence
Hold on, I will stand fast.

In the darkness your guardians had left you
Cold wind beating out of the past
None to hear your cries, none to defend you
Hold on, I will stand fast.

I will stand fast, I will stand fast
You are safe in the daylight at last
Nightmare and fear, they have no power here
I will stand fast.

I will listen to the terrors that tried you
Cold wind beating out of the past
I will cradle the child that breathes inside you
Hold on, I will stand fast.

Though you take the shape of a hundred ancient horrors
Cold wind beating out of the past
Though you strike at me and flee into your sorrow
Hold on, I will stand fast.

I will stand fast, I will stand fast
You are safe in the daylight at last
Nightmare and fear, they have no power here
I will stand fast.

Birds flash upon a branch in winter
Cold wind beating out of the past
Ice in the sun begins to splinter
Hold on, I will stand fast.

You will walk with no fetters to bind you
Cold wind beating out of the past
All the love you have wanted will find you
Hold on, I will stand fast.

I will stand fast, I will stand fast
You are safe in the daylight at last
Nightmare and fear, they have no power here
I will stand fast.

I will stand fast.

Light in the Hall
Lyrics by Fred Small and Jayne Habe

There's a light in the hall
There's a crack in the doorway lets it into my room
Tells me everything tells me everything
I curl up in a ball
Try to slide in the crack between the bed and the wall
I am falling I am falling

Daddy they'll know
I'll walk funny and they'll know I've been bad
Daddy please don't please don't please don't
I'm shaking all over
I squeeze my legs together just as tight as I can
You can't you can't you can okay okay okay

I see the tree through the window
The tree is my friend
I see the moon through the clouds
And the stars without end
I am flying away I am dying

Is there a cradle big enough for this little girl
It wouldn't have to be so very big
For a girl and a teddy bear and a patchwork quilt
It's waiting somewhere for me

Don't you tell anyone
If you know what's good for you
And your little sister don't you love your sister
And who would believe you
Just a little girl with a big imagination
Everyone knows me I'm an important man

I get ready for school
My hair is brushed and pulled tight in a bow
But I am dirty I am dirty
Mommy puts on my coat
Red and purple blotches up and down my legs
She won't look at me she won't look at me

I will run to the park
I will climb on the swing
I will swing so high
Up above everything
Till a cloud takes me away

Is there a cradle big enough for this little girl
It wouldn't have to be so very big
For a girl and a teddy bear and a patchwork quilt
It's waiting somewhere for me

Now I am grown
On a silver chain I wear a pretty stone
A friend gave me to say she loves me
And to say I can love
And to say I am worthy of it
It is not easy it is not easy

Sometimes I scream
Sometimes I weep like the little girl
I never was I never was
I tell the story
Somebody stole my life but I'm taking it back
I can see colors I can see colors now

Tracing the truth through the tangle of lies
Forgiving myself what I did to survive
I am living I am living

Is there a cradle big enough for this little girl
It wouldn't have to be so very big
For a girl and a teddy bear and a patchwork quilt
It's waiting somewhere for me
