My Prayer

With an humble heart I pray for strength to get past this pain
to reach out to accomplish all, to get what I have to gain

But there's an anger trapped deep inside
I fear losing control
I wish I could unleash all that I feel
but my peace I continue to hold

I continue to express my joy
and sometimes
even my pain
all the love I feel

and little of the sorrow

I keep my head held high
I work hard to look to tomorrow
As I walk down life's road
it feels like I'm so alone
but I know there's a stronger power

a power stronger than myself
that will eventually lead me home
In the meantime
my story must go on

I must stand tall
do my best to walk this journey
until the very last step
