Redemption

jb

When I was a little girl
Not yet a woman of the world

I dreamt of becoming an artist
During my childhood darkest

When I was a teen
Wearing tight blue jeans

My only thoughts
To escape every night fought

Through college I went
Suffering every torment

Not getting a PhD
To the world I went to see

Sold clothes at a department store
Dressed men with clothes galore

Wanted more and more
As it was getting to be a bore

So a business woman I became
On this earth to stake my claim

Caught up in a destructive game
Burnout and lots of shame

You pulled me from the Lost and Found
At a time when I nearly drowned

Rescued me from The Life
That brought me so much strife

Given me more hopes and dreams
Than I had ever dared to dream

So your queen I did become
From the ashes I had come from

All of this would have been enough
As dreams are made of this stuff

A man like you there is none
And then you gave me a son

As a bonus to your gift
Now the days are all so swift

A man, you are an exception
My only soul redemption
