"Don't wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly." ~ Francis de Sales


I WAS NOT THE EXPECTED UP UNTIL NOW
I’VE HELD MY OWN TEARS IN MY HANDS
I’VE LOST SO MUCH, IF ANY AT ALL
I TELL YOU SINCERELY NOT TO GO DOWN THE ROADS I WENT

ONCE I FELL AND DIDN’T GET UP
TWICE, I ROSE
I BOUGHT A CRAZY DREAM
I LOVE THIS CRAZY LIFE
I ‘VE BEEN SCARED WHEN I CAN’T SEE
I’VE SEEN THINGS I WISHED I HADN’T SEEN

I’M NOT WHAT IS PORTRAYED
I LEARN TO BE BETTER WITH EVERY CHALLENGE
I’VE HEARD SOME RUMORS ON THE STREET
I’VE HAD SOME PEOPLE TELL ME “THIS IS EVERYTHING”

I ONCE BECOME SOMEONE I KNEW
AND ONLY ONE BEING COULD PERMANENTLY UNDO
I STAND OUTSIDE MYSELF LOOKING IN
FULLY PRESENT ALTHOUGH DEPARTED

I HAVE WON AND I HAVE LOST
I WITNESSED THE REBIRTH OF A BROKEN SOUL
I WILL TESTIFY THE NAME OF JESUS TIL I DIE
I HAVE STORIES OF THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE
I FOUND TRUTH.
