My struggles

At school I wrote exams

Not by pen and ink

But prayer and tears

 

At home I lived breathing

Not by water and bread

But fasting striving with the Almighty

 

The future I would look and see

Not by eyes dimmed and physical

But faith unwavering and hope immortal

 

And I plowed forward and ahead

Not by strength nor might

But His graces and mercies

 

And I made it Promised Land

Not by fate, chance or coincidence

But miracles of Divine providence

 

So I make this testimony today

Neither bragging nor boasting

But fortifying soul striving
