I Believe In The Hands That Hold Me

Rating: 4.5
A life of a girl no one thinks is going to make it through
She fights with everything she has, and does what she has to,
Growing up she’ll be leaving for college soon, and on her own,
Proving to everyone who doubts her she can do it all alone,
Never backing down, she puts up a pretty good fight,
With a smile on her face, She knows in this argument she’s right,
Closing her eyes she prays, “I believe in the hands that hold me, ”
Soon one day all those people are going to see,
She’s going to make it big one day,
Coming back and leaving everyone speechless’ with nothing to say,
Bowing her head she prays, “I believe in the hands that hold me.”
For in her eyes there’s a fire burning bright to be,
People are trying to push her so far down,
But she keeps on smiling, never showing a frown,
Times get hard, but she’s become so strong,
Hard headed she’s come so far along,
Picking her self back up when she fell,
Standing there with her story to tell,
Looking in the crowd with her moms smiling face,
Tears in her eyes because she made her mom proud by winning this race,
She believed in those hands that held her so tight,
With the strength she had she won this fight,
Yes she was so very scared to fail and mess up her dream,
But fear can only last so long until anymore you don‘t want to scream,
No getting this far wasn’t always fair,
Sometimes she wanted to give up because no one seemed to care,
Her mom showed her the way, by taking her hands,
Now this girl is grown up and now understands,
Friends come and go through out life and not all stay,
But there is always another day,
She remembers what she had and lost,
What certain actions cost,
Life’s lessons taught her so much and more,
No more second guessing she’s for sure,
Throwing up her hands for everyone to see,
Praying loud, “I believe in the hands that hold me.
