There are few who are willing to
Know what goes on below
Where hidden in the depths
A torrent of pain and confusion
Of believing I’m a fraud.
The belief for them and me
Is that I’m happy and carefree
And I am, not waving but drowning.
With whom can I share the truth
Who will stand firm by me?
In the days of the dark places
I have been blessed by spirit
Who lets me see it’s ok to be me
Who gives me what I need and
I hear his prayer to set me free.
My challenge in those times is to trust
To truly believe beyond now
To know now is good
And can be better when I let it
Happen his way.
I vow to surrender myself
The lessons are mine alone
They make me who I am, taking me
Forward on an ever increasing spiral
Of wonder and choice.
Thank you for keeping me strong
Thank you for holding me true
Thank you for shining your light on me
Thank you for loving me more than I have
Thank you for my life.
