It's Gonna Be Okay

by Debra Ayis

Lost in a pit of despair Stuck in the mire of hopelessness Of self-loathing, guilt, and depression Mercy found me Where no one else could reach Sunk so deep in a well Far from human redemption Your love reached down Right into this heart of mine Bringing light, healing and salvation Quenching my thirst Giving me a reason to dance Hope, rejoice and live again You found me When no one else could In a confused world That has lost direction and definition A world turned upside down You have made things right again Making sense of life and living I look into my heart and up to the skies To the One who was, who is and is to come And I know everything is going to be okay
