Treasure Island

In The Dark With No Way Out

I was in the dark with no way out
I partied hard without a doubt
Nothing was going to stop me now
I was me and I was showing them all how

How to go from good girl, to apart of the world
From knowing right from wrong, but not being very strong
How to let depression get the best of me, I was to blind to see
How to love my kids with all my heart
yet leaving them with a broken heart

Yes that was me, I was living free
Unhappy as one could be, waiting for someone to rescue me
I tried to take my own life, cutting my arm wide open with a knife
While my two baby boys, was in the next room playing with toys

I was in the dark with no way out
Partying hard without a doubt
Nothing was going to stop me now
I was me and I was showing them all how

God had a plan for me, that's why I am still here you see
He allowed me to go through those things,
so with me a testimony I would bring
Having the the right people in my life, and
becoming a very special mans wife
I truly am free, the darkness no longer has a hold on me

My Lord & Savior never left my side, even when I tried to hide
I now have four boys, and they are happily playing with their toys
I am now over six years clean, with many more testimonies to bring
I now live in the light, where everything is so beautiful and bright
For I have God in my heart, and we will never again be apart

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
