"Life often feels like it's spinning. Just stop and look at the design being made."~ Advice given to me by my aunt Kaitlyn

What can I do
But hope that I don't fall
When my heart is heavy
And so close to shattering
All I can do
Is hope
For this darkness to vanish
For this haze to lift

As the day goes on
As the night sinks in
Each part of me
Each moment I'm here
I feel that hole
Keep growing within
Maybe things were hard
Maybe life was tough
I can't remember
I just remember the pain
That kept slicing through me
Like the razor
I kept slicing across my skin

The past is just that
The past
I've changed a great deal
And have begun my journey
Back into the light
Back to the Lord's path
He placed before me

The scars on my wrist
Are reminders to me
That I made it
I survived my depression

I climbed out to the top
I stood at the cliff edge
Cried out to the Lord
And chose not to take the dive
That would have ended my life

His hands are on me
His light is leading me
I pray to the God
Pray to the Lord
My savior
That I won't fall so far
Ever again
