You were beaten because God wasn’t there
 
How about putting in the correct words
 
You were beaten because I was beaten and I couldn’t see how my integrity, self esteem, concept of love & self had been damaged  so in my ignorance I committed violence to you in delayed reaction & subconcious supression and because I could do so in my position of power and your postion of need being the child whose existence was dependant on me.
 
And that it is not to God I apologise but to you because I did not stand up for you as your person as a person to cherish and value and love to you your SELF.  I damaged your own self image and I make that up to you now by standing up for you, by believing in you, believing of you and against anyone who would try to hurt you intentionally I would do whatever I could to protect you
 
Or if not then what has changed?
