Once upon a time

2 0 0

Maybe once upon a time,

I thought I fought for myself.

Once upon a time,

I wasn't strong enough,

To save myself.

I have the scars to prove it.

I looked for people to save me,

They only ever let me down.

Broke my trust,

Shattered my soul.

I hated myself.

I have the scars to prove it.

Just when I'd lost hope,

For myself,

I'd lost all hope in people,

God picked me up,

When no one else would.

He saved me,

When no one else could.

He fought for me,

When I thought I couldn't.

He gave me a purpose,

When I thought I was useless.

He gave me hope,

When I was hopeless.

Rest when I was weary.

God saved me.
