Light

I am deciding to smile through this darkness.
No longer do I want to succumb to the night
with its empty feelings and artificial light.

I am deciding to smile through this darkness.
No longer do I want to succumb to the night
with its empty feelings and artificial light.
I am going to give the moon a chance
to whisper sweet things into my life.
I’m tired of fighting the things I cannot see 
and I cannot feel.
It’s time for me to mend my broken ways.
It’s time for me to heal.

I am no longer afraid of the enemies coming at me.
I deserve to rest.
I deserve to be happy.
Your opinions have paralyzed my growth.
The fear of displeasing you
by being authentically me
is something that I loathe.
But I gave you that power.
Hoping that in exchange
with sweet tender love and devotion, 
I would be showered.

I will fight through the darkness of my mind.
Even if at the end of it all I come out blind.
I will win the victory of light.
Because my Father, my God, my Friend
is on my side.
And even when I forget
because of His silence,
when I look deep within myself,
I see Him so clear
working through my defiance.

Oooo, I am a force to be reckoned with!
I might be slow in understanding,
but my recoveries are swift.
My bandages get stripped quick,
but I take it like I born for this!
I have been through despair,
but each time I have made it up out of there.
I come out looking for those going in.
I bless them,
I help them,
so that when they come out,
they know they have a friend
waiting for them at the end.

I am deciding to smile through this darkness.
No longer do I want to succumb to the night
with its empty feelings and artificial light.
I have no time for the heartless.
It’s time to show love.
It’s time to start laughing.
It’s time for close ties.
