Angie W., Friends of Guest House, October 2019

going through life with all its ups & downs

trying my best not to wear a frown

trying to have patience with myself

while crying out to God for his help

I know I can not do this on my own

for if I try all I do is moan

oh on this journey the things I’ve learned

these lessons have been hard ones I’ve earned

I’ve cryed I’ve laughed I’ve even yelled

even my body I have sealed

but through it all I’m still standing

with love respect I am demanding

there was a new voice saying

don’t take life sitting down or even laying

standup tall with your head held high

even though you’ve been through a lot its ok to cry

Through your lessons learned you are

now a good woman for all to see

better than you were becoming

exactly who you were meant to be
