It is never too late for anyone to discover his/herself in life. Discovering this talent of writing makes me feel elated...
When one has not made it in my land people look down on the person and the bible also says as I paraphrased that no one wants to be a friend of those who are poor.
However when God answers one's prayers, one would be sought after at those places where they have been forsaken and rejected.
Thinking about this, I decide to put this simple words down into songs because we have read that such also happened to Jephthah in the bible.
The link of the tune used has been shared here.
Like Jephthah I have been casted out
By siblings and relatives
Family members have called me unworthy one
Indeed even in their midst
Sorrowfully I 've left my family
Even into places I never know
Not knowing what 'll happen to me
In my adventure in the new world
My adventure was not fun filled at all
'T was hectic full of ups and downs
Sometimes I don't know what steps again to take
'Cause I am wearied of life
When I thought all was over with me
You gently spoke to my heart
Thay you 've not started with me at all
And you 'll surprise me on earth
This word gives me rest I can't say
In you my savior and Lord
'Cause I know you will never lie
Whatever you say you 'll do
Gradually you started working with me
Putting my enemies to shame
And at place where I have been abased
I become sought after there
Oh! Glory! To my Maker and Lord
Who is turned my shame to glory
Almighty God Creator of heaven and earth
You 've exalted me greatly
