I've been...


United States
26° 48' 25.3152" N, 80° 4' 53.1444" W

I've been tired and hungry
I've been lost and been left.
I've been lied on and spied on
I've been beaten and bereft.
I've been preyed on and prayed for
without a prayer of my own
I've been hopeless and helpless
with my whole world just gone.
Now I'm love and I'm laughter
I'm sunshine and rain.
I've fallen by the wayside
only to get up again.
I'm strength and I'm purpose
so don't let it be said..
that I ever gave up. Because
I've NEVER been dead!!!!
