There is a difference in the way I feel, to what most people think,
if you should know the truth of it, for sure you would wonder why,
do I keep smiling through it all, for the pain I sometimes feel inside,
would surely take its tole on me, and cause my faith to sink.
I should feel anger for what has happened, to my frail soul,
and yet when I seek what I feel, by searching through my heart,
I am dignified with freedom, from what should surely be despair,
by a peace given to my spirit, by a love that makes me whole.
This spirit God has granted me, has quieted this troubled mind,
by offering me courage, to find happiness from many sources,
from people who live about me, and from those who are far away,
who wish to know this same feeling, that I was fortunate to find.
It is my faith that made this difference, in my life that I'd been dealt,
there really is no secret to it, all it took was for me to release,
the anger that was inside, hidden behind my tears of sadness,
that for years I'd often cried, not understanding why this way I felt.
As small as my faith was, eventually it did grow during those days,
as I traveled on this journey that is my life, and interacted with other souls,
seeking peace for their minds, from the troubles that they suffered,
similar to mine as I discovered, experienced by various painful ways.
As my faith grew I soon found, the hate dissipated from my soul,
my feelings altered from the state, that they had been crippled by for so long,
and left me feeling relief and sometimes joy, as friends I slowly made,
among the people that I came upon, and whose caring has now made me whole.
