From deep beneath
I pull myself from under.
Sensing myself sinking below
earth’s surface, I grab hold
and push myself on.
Finally, I am coming to realize
I am capable of treading these
many vacant miles.
The depth of my wounds are healing
and my once broken spirit is lifting,
I am a survivor.
Inner wealth, I have gained
and will no longer fall to the knees
of bitter weakness.
The grace of freedom, I embrace
and reject any and all failure.
I will my future to be greater.
Immense strength, I now possess
and have, graciously, found
within myself a savior.
