The Journey


You didn't know I knew,
It was the minute you gave up,
The second you refused to try,
The moment you ceased to believe,
Yet in that moment I presented you clarity, renewed hope, and strength,
Carried you through the obstacle,
Let you regain your courage,
Enabled you to believe,
Showered you with peace and love,
Smothered you with compassion,
It was in that moment I renewed you,
Refined you,
Empowered you,
Then you flew like a butterfly,
Carefree,
Beautiful,
A reflection of the most high.
