There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a cross roads. The choice we make in those moments can define the rest of our days.
Struggle all my life with the demons I held inside.
Taking pills to numb the pain in hopes it would all fade away.
Walk around with a fake smile on my face.
Just to hide the pain no one else could see.
My emotions running wild and free through my mind.
Like a roller coaster out of control at times.
I could not take another semester of bad grades.
Or walking around the world in a daze.
So I took the plunge and quit the meds.
Scared to death of the anxiety attacks that awaited me.
Not sure how I was going to handle the bipolar disease.
The ADHD was a whole other story.
Having to sit still and focus was a joke.
I was out of options and at the end of my rope.
When I listened to a friend who said give this a try.
He took my hand and guided my way
Telling me stories of the love god has to give.
Little by little my faith began to grow.
The emptiness in my soul was no longer a hole.
Day by day my mind is renewed.
I no longer fight my demons at night.
God has sent an angle to protect me from the fight.
Holding my hand I am never alone.
God has my back until I come home.
