When I was young,
I lost myself.
I didnt know what I wanted,
Or who i wanted to be.
I knew for a fact that my dad was disappointed,
The people that I hung around were bad influences.
They were surrounding me with drugs and alcohol,
Those were two things I didnt want to do,
Because my mom died from them.
What would my mom want for me?
What would God want for me?
Words in a distance surrounded, "A good directed life".
Those words pierced my heart,
I knew I wasnt directing my life,
My friends were.
The one thing that made me move forward was,
A faithful God.
He has always been by my side,
Even when I had doubts.
He was the person who caught me when I was falling
I owe my life to him.
He saved me.
He changed me from a follower,
Into a leader.
I am the one who guides my own life,
Not anyone else.
