owed to dolly

OWED TO DOLLY Raised in a world without any morals Lead me to a lifetime of sorrows Words that were written within Dolly's songs was the only reason I even took this challenge on? Refusing to have my children raised that very same way I focused on this world that she always sung about From singing Dolly's song's it would see me begin to pray the crossing over into this world of happier day's Was much harder than her song's did ever say believing only in her words during the hardest of time's I'd sing her songs till it would eventually calm my mind but with Dolly as my guide I took it all in my stride twenty-one years after I first stepped onto this hopeful walk It is the one thing I did right, to seek out this world she spoke unknowing it was her alone that filled me with strength and hope To leave the only world in which I'd known And guide us to this little town, we now call home So thank you Mrs Dolly Parton for letting your lyric's be known they alone were the power in which I 'finally' found our loving home

    Oh Denise, I am so glad I read this. The magic of poetry - I (again) am so glad that things worked out for you that way. An unexpected attribution, but such a worthy one. : )
