Andrea Lynn Johnson Beck
A new day has come upon me
To see what I believe
To live beyond what I know
To feel and to grow
Beyond the why’s
And shallow cries
Here to stand in the sun
The strands of warmth embrace as one
Conviction deepens within this soul
To be found, to be whole
To be still
Just be still, the calm, the serenity
The intake of pure tranquility
A lightness flows through my every vein
The scars, the pain
The tears that have stained
I released the string that held me there
I have given it all, Forgiveness I bare
A new me has come upon this day
A Strength and Faith that will eternally stay
When those who hurl their sticks and stones at me I remember who is shielding them.
My soul is tough and wicked words bounce right off me.
I have God's strength and truth to guide me and help me let go of those people who want to tear me down because really, they actually have further to fall. Jealousy is a foul color, don't let it taint your heart. Don't let it spread like cancer.
Just let go.
