After facing enormous difficulties, I moved across the country. There, I spent the next few years focusing on healing.
Listen While Reading
The lovely trees, so full of green
Even though tis wintertime
I wonder what will come this spring
Such beauty you cannot describe
These trees whisper a sweet melody
A song of hope and love
They offer a sense of security
That may only come from above
I look at the world that now surrounds me
So different from where I have been
No longer in prison, I am set free
Though pain grips my heart now and then
I know not where I found strength to survive
Blessed to have made it through
Thankful for green, I feel so alive
Discovering a life fresh and new
