My Testimony

I was born in a typical family.
Raised in world of hidden pain.
We went to church every weekend,
but yelled between Sundays.
I wanted to achieve perfection,
wanted to impress the world.
I was being ripped deep inside
hoping no one saw what I would hide.
I went to a revival for a week,
found a new savior for me.
Then there was a newfound perfection
I thought I had to achieve.
My heart became darker,
each lie I hid.
I couldn't bear it any more
and fell into addictions.
I slashed my wrists,
tried to numb the pain.
I told God 
there is no other way.
I stepped back from his love
told him I just give up.
I wallowed in my lost ways
became a lustful slave.
Prayers were lifted up by my friends,
it all seemed useless then.
I found someone
who helped me feel again.
Once we parted ways
I realized I needed the True HIM.
I found myself at a church,
feeling a strange heart tug.
I have now fallen on my knees
praying to God to give me peace.
Every day I am healing,
my testimony is growing.
I know now that God is with me
and this life is not in vain.
