Six years of hell, six years of pain
He that did it, as a sick and twisted mind game
So many names, so many hurts,
So many wounds, so many tears
He that did it spat on us like dirt.
So much noise, so much fear
So much blood, so many restless nights
He that did it loved to fight.
So much pressure, I couldn’t hold it in
Every day I confessed my sins
When my teacher saw the pain I was in
She said “Tell me about it”
I said “Where do I begin?’
As I let go of this anvil that weighed me down
I began to hear a new sound
That sang a song of hope so blissful to my ears.
New light began to shine on me
As I began to follow my dreams
Something wonderful was revealed to me
My calling and my destiny waiting for me.
Meeting new people
Letting go of that pain
Coming to a place of hope and destiny
I finally found what had been calling me
I found my treasure, my gift
I found my heart.
I see out my heart’s eyes
For that’s my gift.
