Overcome

Written by: nedra johnson aswad

Overcome by lifes perplexities, the challenge is real
Yet I will be strong, I will go on and on
Overcome by greifilled sorrow, many loved ones gone,
Yet I hope to see them, one more time again
Overcome by constant pain, worsening day by day,
Yet I will continue to pray for some relief someday
Overcome by feelings of depression, 
these emotions just too strong
Yet I will rise above, I'll show someone some love
Overcome by anxiety, everything bothering me 
Yet I'll yearn for peace, I've begun to find relief
Overcome by stress of a job loss, 
No help to carry this heavy cross
Yet I'll become my own boss,
Help someone with the same loss
Overcome by fearfull feelings,
Uncertain of my lifespan,
Yet I know, if my time has not yet come,
Ain't no one can take me down
Overcome by life's perplexities, 
the challenge is real
Yet I will be strong,
I will go on and on
I will overcome!
