    As I peek through the avenues of existence
    and see that all life is precious...
    I have truly gained a clear understanding
    of life and how grateful I am to be alive!!!

    Thankful
    full of gratitude....
    I have been shown mercy
    and I breathe
    I have awaken everyday for the past 22 years
    and even though I haven't used all my time wisely...
    I'M Here

    Some roads I have walked on
    have been to my own hurt
    but thank God in heaven
    that I learned from each experience
    and I didn't have to have a brick fall on my head....
    I woke UP!!!!
    and saw the Light


    The things I have been exposed to...
    guess you can say I grew up real fast
    And even though I am only 22
    that doesn't define the journeys of my past

    Maybe God just wanted to get all that negative
    stuff out of my life early
    and show me where I didn't wanna end up
    I was thrusted into a world I barely knew
    and I must admit,I was a little gullible
    but maturity kicked in and
    I got out...
    I got off...
    that highway of destruction QUICK


    Thus I have gained wisdom
    integrity
    I am honest
    full of sincerity
    and most of all
    LOVE rules me
    GOD IS LOVE!!!!
    He loves us...
    He created us..

    He taught me that
    through it ALL He was there
    He'll never leave you
    Nor Forsake you...

    And Father God....
    That's good news to me!!

    First we crawl.
    Then we walk.
    Next we run.
    But by your words sister,
    You FLY!
