A little bit of my story
Once upon a time
A woman dared to dream
Of finding love unlike no other;
Impossible it seemed.

She didn’t know what to expect
If it were ever found.
For she had never felt it
From the men she kept around.

The only thing she knew of love
Was that it caused her pain.
She kept so much faith and hope,
She’d always try again.

Then one day she looked into the mirror
At her face.
The lines of sadness creased her forehead.
She felt so misplaced.

Her self esteem and confidence
Were barely even there.
She saw herself as weak and frail.
Emotions everywhere.

She’d let those men define her.
Control her heart and mind.
She believed she had no worth.
No treasure left to find.

As she looked into the mirror
She heard a still, small voice.
It said, “Look deep into yourself.
You have another choice.

You don’t need another man
To tell you who you are.
You are my creation.
Radiant as a star.

So hold to my unchanging hand.
I am all you need.
All you have to do is ask
And you shall receive.”

A single tear rolled down her cheek
As she began to smile.
She had heard the voice of God.
She knew she was his child.

She felt a sense of purpose
Strength filled her from above.
Her heart slowly began to heal,
She had found the greatest love.
