Oh life! Why are you so hard
Crushing and devouring me so bad
Like the darkness you bind me
Making me crawl, reel on the ground under me.
I fail to see my inner beauty
I fail to find my strength and integrity.
I feel like a shaken nail on the wall
As if somebody is testing my faith as in a trial.
I begin to give up
But that somebody also inspires me to rise up and up.
I lose patience, I bleed
But He assures me that I can lead.
I try to take a glance at him
But all I can see is myself in him.
