    TODAY,
    I WILL NOT HOLD MY HEAD DOWN IN SHAME

    BUT INSTEAD,

    I WILL LIFT MY HEAD UP HIGH, THOUGH I WILL RECEIVE NO FAME



    TODAY,
    I WILL ASK MY GOD TO GIVE ME THE STRENGTH, TO SURVIVE

    BECAUSE TODAY,
    I REALIZED, I WANTED TO LIVE AND NOT DIE



    TODAY,
    I WILL FACE THE PAST, THAT HAVE JAILED MY SOUL

    I WILL NO LONGER BE HELD CAPTIVE TO THE TRUTH THAT MAY UNFOLD


    I WILL NO LONGER LET MY DEMONS, TORTURE MY WEAKNESS, BECAUSE I, AM, NOT PERFECTED

    I, AM, A WORK IN PROGRESS, BECAUSE TODAY GOD IS RECONSTRUCTING, ALL THAT'S BEEN REJECTED

    TODAY,
    I FOUNDED GOD IN ME, NO LONGER WILL I BE A PRISONER OF MY DISCREPANCIES

    I WILL RISE ABOVE THE NEGATIVITY, BECAUSE MY GOD IS BREATHING, A NEW LIFE BACK INTO ME


    EVEN IF THE WORLD CHOOSE NOT TO RESPECT ME OR ACCEPT ME,

    BECAUSE IT EASIER TO NEGLECT ME AND REJECT ME

    JUST REMEMBER,

    TODAY,
    I WILL NOT HOLD MY HEAD DOWN IN SHAME

    BUT INSTEAD

    I WILL LIFT MY HEAD UP HIGH, AND PRAISE GOD'S NAME,

    TODAY,
    IS THE DAY, I WILL GIVE GOD ALL THE GLORY AND THE FAME

    BECAUSE, HE BELIEVED, MY SOUL WAS WORTH SAVING AND MY PAST WAS WORTH FORGIVING

    TODAY,
    I THANK HIM, BECAUSE I KNOW NOW, THAT MY LIFE,
    IS,
    TRULY
    WORTH LIVING

    No matter how low we get, God can always lift us up. This was such a positive piece, so inspirational.

    This piece makes the
    Soul stand up straight,
    the head hold itself up
    high, as the feet take
    new steps into the
    unknown!!!
