to just the hope that you will guide me out of this hell
that you will help me find my way again.
For the darkness of today will not be the darkness of tomorrow
the words flowing from you mouth will not be forgotten today and tomorrow I will still ponder over them.
Holding on for your strength, your love, your protection my lord for no one can provide that for me than you.
You get me through the things that make me want to pull my hair out
You’re the one that makes me stop and think before I say something I may regret
The reason my patience isn’t as thin as it used to be, the reason my truth is out there for all eyes to see.
The reason I am always on alert mode, watching the actions of others and making sure I’m not following in their footsteps.
You’re the reason I breathe another day and wake up being grateful for the people in my life.
The reason I am as quiet as I am for my voice should only be used to cause good and not bring more bad into the world.
I know I am not perfect and that no one is and each day we all go through something and at times we want to be in their shoes for on the outside it all looks so good.
But, yet on the inside things may not be in the place you are when you are just being you, the person you know inside and out.
Shine because he wants you too not because someone else thinks or believes you are more than you are.
You know who has the answers and who doesn’t and maybe one day you will see you as he sees you.
