Who I am Today

Before there was joy,

I was alone, and unhappy,
Before there was love,

I was on thin ice with my family,
Before there was honesty,

I was a drug addict living in denial,
Before there was restraint,

I was a criminal, running wild,
Before there was redemption,

I was someone I wish I didn't know,
Before there was courage,

all I had, was hope,
Before there was forgiveness,

I was filled with hate, anger, and greed,
Before there was change,

I was cruel, vengeful, and mean,
When night comes, I lay down,

and fold my hands to pray,
I thank God, for every second of my life, that made me,

Who I am today
