"I know what it's like"
I know what it's like to feel alone,
you're feeling the weight of life's issues
I know what it's like to feel like a disheartened- clone
when others want you to celebrate their great news
But inside you are dying - -
because you haven't arrived at your promised land yet
and while others are soaring and high flying
you're the one losing on life's personal bet.
I know what it's like to cry myself to sleep.
I know what it's like to to throw in the towel and quit
To believe that your Dream is too far of a leap
and that your life is stuck in a sinking pit.
I know what it's like when the dreams you planted die.
When people unashamedly leave your life
and you abandoned your excitement with a quick good-bye
And you rip up your goals and hopes with a knife.
On those moments and in that time,
I need you to remember one thing.
Though right now things don't look sublime
And you are overlooked as others are crowned king
Please, stand strong. Have faith. Hold on tight.
I need you to remember that after the storm is a rainbow
That after midnight... will be the bright sunlight
And I believe prayer will cause the goodness of God to flow!
Remember the positives... family and friends
Take care of yourself during this time of heartbreak
Because, I promise you...this is not the end!
God is going to move favorably, for your sake!
So though I know what it's like to wallow in despair
I also know what its like to keep going through it all
Step outside. Breathe in deep. Get some air.
You are going to be just fine....just call - -
Call on the Father who loves you!
Depend on the Savior who is always positive!
Reach out to those who sit by you in the church pew
Because I know God will use you in your life's narrative.
I know what it's like to fight.
I even made a poem so I could encourage you...tonight.
If you need prayer for anything, let me know. I would love to pray for you!
