By Ken Simmons
It wasnít so very long ago
That I lived inside a tortured soul
My heart was weary and my mind was weak
And deep depression was my highest peak.
For many years I suffered alone with strife
But Iím now beginning to look forward to life.
Many were the times I wanted to die
But those who were helping asked me not to try.
Now with Christís help Iíve found a way
To make it through each coming day
He has entered my heart and taken control
And brought peace to my once tortured soul.
He gave me the courage to bring others near
So that I could learn to control my fear
And for all the hate I had in my heart
He said to forgive those who made it start.
For the self-disgust I feel in my mind
He said to myself I should be kind
Then thereís the story of my damaged pride
With this I let Christ be my guide.
I canít say I did this on my own
For there were others who brought points home
Doctors and counselors all played their part
Whose guidance and support gave me courage to start.
Iím only beginning to find my way
But I try harder with each coming day
I pray to God that Iíll continue to grow
And peace in my life Iíll someday know.
