I can remember what life was like,
Before I met Jesus Christ.
Dark, dismal and not very clear,
It was lonely, disappointing, and full of fear.
Pain and suffering without any hope,
Trying to find some way to cope.
Alcohol and drugs were what I used.
Eventually it was what I abused.
I found my self wrapped in chains.
Bound to addiction and so much pain.
Desperate to find some type of peace,
Hoping that some how I’d be released.
Released from this invisible jail,
Released from this unexplainable hell.
I can remember doing something so odd.
I got on my knees and cried out to God.
I said to him with eyes full of tears,
And a heart that was missing him for years.
If you are real than show me please.
I really, really, want to believe.
I opened the door to my heart then,
And Jesus was happy to be let in.
As I sit here writing this piece today
There is one thing I can truly say.
Once you finally open that door,
After will be better than before.
