Now, I understand better
How, God steps into my matter
all the while I'd thought He cared less
By letting me toil in Life's mess

He sat on his throne rather,
as a Loving Father gazing upon me
as my comfort one after the other
gradually was plucked off me

He had me strip off like a dress
all that seemed of great value to me
Leaving me in want and emptiness
that I may look deep down within me

In my distress I cried out in pain
feeling as though no longer existing
all efforts to put me together went in vain
as the components of me kept splitting

I lost a glimpse of my personality
clouded by my heart splitting mishaps
with fore-sight appearing miles away from reality
"Patience oh Child!" He said,the dawn is near perhaps;

Now, I rejoice and embrace those seizures
for they're here to dig up in me treasures
utilizing my most disheartening story
Even to ascribe God undivided Glory
