So long ago I was beside myself

Living in inequities and transgressions

Possibly holding them to my side for too long

Now, I’ve come to manage my fear

Is not in the dear restraints that keep me

On my toes searching for more

Now I tear through my bandages

Hoping to break free of what once was damaging

Is now testimony of my safety

My nature Is terribly uncertain

But today I raise the curtain

And call it my testimony is shown

Such as a retardation is prone

To dissolving through the richness

That becomes my suit of armor

I’m one with my natural self

No longer holding to inhibitions

But farther proving to myself

That my keep is tender

And so is my meekness

So I surrender in passion to my faith

Because it is my only salvation.
