#Thankful

Riding on the waves of life,

I was washed ashore by the tide.

Through perseverance and strife

I was able to set aside my pride.

No longer in pain, caused by emotionally traumatic experiences,

because I’d decided to live life the way God intended.

This journey has been a long one and I’m only twenty-two,

And years ago I didn’t see myself here. Only God knew.

Separating me from my mistakes, teaching me to not make them again.

I was separated from loved ones, cherished ones, family and friends.

Because I was drowning— suffocated by lies, conflict and hate.

So today I am shore on the right path, journeying to my fate.
