MY CROSSROAD LIFE - THANKS

MY CROSSROAD LIFE - THANKS

Everything never made sense 
My purpose and will was gone
 It was my shell walking.
Walking with thoughts in my mind
I was lifeless and life within me gone,
Gone away with the moment,
Moments of shattered dreams
And a weeping soul in the dark.

Times like that I wished I was gone,
Gone to escape my painful reality,
A reality that my life was now gone.
I wallowed in my loneliness and tears,
Every night spending it awake,
Not even a pinch of a sleep came.
Sitting down wishing I don’t sleep,
For I feared I might sleep forever.

I was confused and crashing inside,
Crashing never to rise again,
Never to rise again from the dust.
I was not even a shadow of myself,
I didn’t even know who I was anymore,
But now I can feel I am alive,
Because God gave me hope again,
That’s why I want to thank him.

I wanted to rise up again but I could not,
I was in a fix and scared for my life.
Oh lord of lords I need you to know,
Am grateful for your mercies.
You saved me from the man I was,
A man who did not know himself,
Who he was and his own shadow,
That’s why I want to thank you.
