My husband abandoned me

And I took a very long journey
I had children to take care of
But, my strength alone was not enough
Soon, I became a drug addict
With power to explode
For what I sought to self inflict
Took me down a hard road
I never looked in the mirror
For I had become something ugly
Then, one day I knelt in terror
Praying to end my life of drugging
 God led me down a path of peace
Found in a simple scripture
The words: “Seek and you shall find” did please
And for more I did venture
For in truth I wanted more
To no longer be confused
I sought to repent to the Lord
And my family I had abused
Twenty-seven years is a long time
To try to “do this life” alone
But through the Book of Mormon I find
The way to Christ that it makes known
Today I can look in the mirror
And feel God’s love, superior
“Today I want everyone to see
What the Lord has done with me!”
