Somewhere along the way I lost my voice
By someone or something I was silenced
I was once an out spoken child and now I am a growing young woman
Somewhere along the way I grew up
I grew tired of the things my peers were doing
By something or someone I was silenced to the point where I couldn’t express day-to-day feelings
My emotions were running wild, gone with the wind
Somewhere along the way I lost my voice felt lost, betrayed and stressed
by someone or something I was silenced
Silence and tears became my best friends
Lost in my own cries I couldn’t hear God until I began to realize that this wasn’t life
Somewhere along the way I lost my voice but gained God
by his strips I was healed!
I was delivered!
No longer silenced!
No longer stressed, lost or betrayed
because he loves me
No someone or something could take my joy
Somewhere along the way I lost my voice, gained God, faith and happiness and for that I am thankful
Thankful that joy comes in the morning
Thankful that my morning can come when I’m ready for it to be here
Thankful because I am blessed beyond measures because…
Somewhere along the way God protected, loved and cared for me
