"Choice is the most holy act you can do. Everything in you life is made up of what you choose."

I think I'm beggining to know who I am
A girl who's always faced the world,
With a strong head on her shoulders
If I could have talked to her before,
I would have told her,
Of all the challenges she'd face
She'll surface

A scream that's never left my ear,
the marking of a doom that's near
My father lies cold and dead
His skin cool when I kissed his head

Betrayal, anger is all I feel these days
I learned the fact of life- nothing is ever okay
When you mom is lost, your brother is destant
When you catch your mom crying in the kitchen

As confused as I was, who'd I have to listen
To all of my angry thoughts burned in my brain
Crying out wanting someone to comfort my tears,
My efforts in vain when no one appears

I scream awoken form my nightmares
And scream again knowing no one cares
Twelve years old and I was ready to fold
This hand of cards too much to hold

Now lost in my head
As I cry in my bed
And no ones there for me
As I push through my misery

It's been awhile since I've cried
Since I thought I'd lose this fight
Because I have a God who loves me
Who thought I was worth saving

After everything thats been about
who I am is how I turned out
I smile, knowing I have won
But life's not over and I'm not done

I know nothing can break kme
Or my will to succeed
I take in clean breaths
High in this tree

My thoughts sorted through
As my body moves
I am a dancer
Through And through

My spirit is owned
by my Redeemer
I am a writer
A constant daydreamer

All I want out of life
Is a tree pencil and paper
the rest I'll provide
Fire in my eyes
