I pulled myself inside my heart From a life distraught. Completely torn apart. Fighting just to hold on. Not knowing what to do. Felt like my life was gone. Couldn’t go back home. Prepared to fight. Had to stand alone. No one ever had my back. Trouble was always there. No one cut me any slack. Was almost killed at home. No way safe to go back. Had to be left all alone. Had a short fuse. Just like others. Had to pay my dues. Good street fighter. Challenging anyone at times. Wanting to become a writer. Could never set still. Always pushing and pushing. Would override my will. Making sure this time. Got to watch their blood spill. Never ever for a moment cared. How they would feel. My life needed to heal. At 15 I simply lost my will. Nothing left to give. No way could I feel. No longer wanting to live then I crossed his path. He began to care about me and started helping me with my wrath. He started cleansing me, Felt like I had had a bath and I no longer felt dirty. For the first time ever I finally felt worthy. His name Jesus Christ. He showed me love. A whole lot more than twice. He told me to end all the lies. It was a lot easier than I thought. Much to my surprise. Praise You Father for sending Jesus. You know how to please us. In Jesus name my life will never be the same. Amen Amen and Amen. Always and Forever and ever. 🙏🙏🙏
