i kept waiting for something to happen.
a sign from heaven, a break in the waves.
but you know what the funny thing is?
only more disaster came upon me. 

i cried out like Job, angry at God.
i didn't understand and never thought i would heal.
time went on, really not that long.
and the pain has receded.

i don't know why this happened to me.
i don't think i ever will.
but i know one thing.
my God will be forever near me.

He calls me His daughter, He calls me His creation.
He carries me in the palm of His hand.
freedom i seek, freedom i shall acquire.
nothing, nobody, and no circumstance will separate me from Him. 

The End
