I once was lost,
But now have found my way,
Amazing Grace and reminders,
I have a purpose for this day.

Reasons to get out of bed in the mornings,
Talismen and loves to which I cling,
Loving those around me,
Has opened my heart and helped it to sing.

Removing the dark glasses,
Has finally allowed my soul to see,
All the love in my world,
My heart sings again and is free.

I have only one more obstacle to overcome,
I'm lacking in self confidence,
For 3 years it unravelled and came undone,
Floundering, losing consciousness.

I'm working at it daily,
To build that confidence again,
With loves new and old,
And friendships, I'll never go back again.

Friendships and love have saved this wretch,
From a fate too scary to fathom,
Never again shall I be so weak,
To feel the wounds from their talons.

With love as my light,
To lead the way,
Those past insecurities,
Are already fading away.
