When I Look Back on My Life
When I look back on my life,
I know I have come a long way.
I am surely not the prettiest or the smartest,
But I walk in my own way.
I have been left alone to figure out who I am
With no guidance or support
only to find I always came up short.
Struggling emotionally to stay strong
For my 3 beautiful children
and everyone else who looked upon me
Never realizing how much I was really suffering
No breaking down, no crying
Always trying to smile and show them the way
so they would never see such disarray
As the years pass, and they surely do
I only grow and get stronger,
No longer feeling the whole world discouraging.
I have no more tears to shed or frowns to hide
Only smile and love I will and can provide.
I know the world is still cruel
And when I need to refuel
I will step back and pray
And start again on the same day.
