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.
