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,
two years ago I didn’t see myself here but God knew.
Placing me away from mistakes and how not to make them again,
I was separated from loved ones, cherished ones, family and friends.
I was drowning. Suffocated by lies, conflict and hate.
But, today I am shore on the right path. Journeying to my fate.
