In the midst of my pain,
In the midst of my fears,
I cry out, Lord help me to redefine myself.
Not by man's words, thoughts, or actions against me
But by your spirit, your word, your love, your grace and your mercy.
I lay here thinking about my heart, life and my desires and I come to the conclusion that all is hopeless without you.
I have tried in my own strength to do what I thought you wanted me to do, but now I am asking you to show me the way.
After everything else has failed My preconceived ideas and my desire to be seen and heard
All I want is to be led by you direct my steps oh Lord as I painfully surrender my life to you.
Lord, help me to redefine myself.
- Natalee Henry
I want to change
This life is full of distractions
It feels kind of strange
This life with no satisfaction.
Brain in war with heart
Mind in war with soul
Time for a new start
'Cause life right now is out of control.
All this stress
Without any gain
I need to start fresh
The canvas clean and plain.
But writing isn't enough,
As described in these stanzas
It's going to be rough
But I'll paint on a fresh canvas.
- Kareem Marshal
I am me
I am me
I was born with a personal and unique identity
Which separates and sets me apart from you, from everybody
Endowed on me from birth
And will remain thus until eternity
It identifies me as somebody
Unlike and apart from any other person
My identical twin brother may be the split image of me
But his personal identity sets him apart from me
Even my children have their own identity
Apart from their mommy and daddy
For me there are no duplicates
I was created in my own image
A process which was determined by a host of complexities
Which led to this wonderful masterpiece that is me
This marvel of genetical engineering
Naturally has a few ingredients in its composition
Like personality, astrology, reality and destiny
All playing a part in fashioning my destiny
As we travel through life on this space of odyssey
Speeding along on a predetermined journey.
- Anthony Evans
Across the ocean, over the hills, through the valleys, bright leaves which beautify the trees, clear the air and conceal the atmosphere.
With the blanket of beauty so Mother Nature is seen, vibrant setting fits the start of day.
Inhabitants of all sources admire this frequent happening and applaud in amazement the beauty surrounding the morning lights.
