But Still…I Rise


It engulfed me
The thought that I would not reach the heights dreamed
The idea that another human had MY future
Because of the difference in the name of our institutions
I found my shell
Crawled in and stayed there
Cheerful on the outside
Bordering depression on the inside
It engulfed me

Life would take a different form
I wasn’t good enough
Fear stole my peace
My sanity was raped
I understood in that moment why Jane took her life
Life seemed empty
How is all this hard work supposed to pay off

Then He rescued me from my greatest enemy
My greatest enemy that lived within me
Jesus set me free from my fear
I am indeed good enough
How dare I compare precious life with mere dreams
I counted my blessing
The more I counted the more they became
My list will never be exhausted

Then I dusted my bible
Remembered my scriptures
Romans 8: 38 – 39
For I am sure that neither death nor life
Nor angels nor rulers
Nor things present nor things to come
Nor powers
Nor height nor depth
Nor anything else in all creation
Will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
He is indeed true to His word

Deuteronomy 31:8
It is the Lord who goes before you
He will be with you
He will not leave or forsake you
Do not fear or be dismayed
For greater is He that is in you
Than he who’s in the world
He liberated me
All Him do for you what only He can do
