My Story--Deb Wilson
Tumbled into this world head first.
Knowing not what was in store.
Along the way some bubbles burst.
Yet on this journey I found my core.
First years were filled with pain and grief.
Lost child was I with no direction.
Seemed I'd never be granted relief.
I was so hungry for love and affection.
As I grew up the colder I got.
Took myself down a rocky road.
Still there were many visions sought.
Yet couldn't shake off this heavy load.
Time spent in shadows then turned to dawn.
As life rolled on so much was learned.
Soon a lot of the pain was gone.
Calm set in ,the right bridges were burned.
Now love surrounds me as does laughter.
I've found peace and also strength.
Finally know what I'm dancing after.
A road like this takes lots of length.
