If ever someone has been broken and fixed
I think it would be I.
And lo, and behold, I figured out
The answer to my “Why?”
Sometimes God must let us fall
And feel Life’s harshest wrath,
Only then can we arise
To walk straighter on His path.
To others I might seem to be
Someone whose life is marred,
But God sees me as clean and new,
Not as someone scarred.
