    Lying in bed at three in the morning
    things come to mind that day light scares away
    Self doubt takes root deep in my soul
    Wondering what my purpose in life is
    While at the same time striving to complete it
    Its a struggle in this world just to survive
    Truths to ugly to behold come forth
    Forcing me to face myself in their wake
    But always buried in the uglieness is
    An ounce of HOPE
    Through faith all things shall be overcome
    I tell myself to be strong and I
    Draw on the inner strengths given me
    By my ancestors, whose trials and tribulations
    were much greater than my own
    Always the cycle continues on and on
    Doubts and fears come to life in the darkness of night
    Its takes true power to overcome this self doubt
    I hope to go through a metamorphisis
    Like a catapillar, I need to form a cacoon
    And go deep within myself for much needed introspection
    To emerge new, refreshed and beautiful.
