You’ve waited patiently when times were hard,
You played your hand and never threw down your cards.
You taught yourself to look at the stars,
Instead of looking at all of your internal scars.
You laughed when the pain cut deep,
You smiled so hard you thought you would weep.
Your tears became make up filled with your pain,
They made you bow your head and hold it in shame.
Through failure and fear you stood tall,
Even when they threw rocks and stones trying to make you fall.
The time has come for you to shine,
It’s time to leave it all behind.
To erase all your mistakes and let the healing begin,
Because it’s your time, it’s your time to win.
So laugh a little, smile a little, and even cheer,
And wait until that next season is near.
The Lord has come to all who are weary,
To awaken those who have become dreary.
It’s your time to listen and your time to pray,
So another one of God’s won’t be casted away.
Put on your armor to fight the good fight,
Because it’s your time to show God’s might.
