    I awaken wrapped securely in your arms
    Feeling content to be safe from harm
    Blessed to be loved for simply being me
    Satisfied to allows things to just be
    Yet even as I settle into your reassurance
    My mental trys to form plan b insurance
    The devil on my left whispers "what about the bad days"
    But the angel affirms that is when she should pray
    For a life without rain hasn't any appreciation of sunshine
    Rainbows only appear after the storm is left behind
    I have not arrived to where I think I ought to be
    However I can testify that I have come far from the old me
    Even in my imperfections I continue to chase his perfection
    For I know that in seeking him I find my very direction
    Assured that grace and mercy following me are sufficient
    Graced for this life by the Almighty I am beyond proficient
    For in my weakness Yahweh's strength is able to shine through
    I'm naught but a broken vessels deem worthy to reflect His hue
    Through the cracks in this shell of clay shines rays of his essence
    Fire shut up in my bone till I genuinely radiate incandescent
    For I was bought with a price they defies intellectual comprehension
    One that I could never repay in a million years of grateful attention
