    In order to describe the transformation of this day
    One must have a full awareness of the former way

    When my life became inside out and upside down
    And my world seems to get turned all the way round

    Becoming the opposite reciprocal of the former me
    Losing the knowledge of how things ought to be

    Deception & misconceptions, no more direct reflection
    All leading to a new revelation of twisted perception

    Lies dressed in the pristine robe of uprightness
    Had my mind literally working overtime without rest

    Sitting in a lonely desert place with no plans of progress
    Or knowledge to undo the process that led to this unrest

    But like Paul on the Damascus Road I saw the light
    And in the midst of this confusion I received my sight

    I was able to see my way back to that which was right
    Standing before you now with a vow to give it all my might

    And you brought yourself back with such determination. What strength there is in your words.
