Leap of Faith

by Trina Williams-Emigh

My beginning was none so great
Yet despite the life I was born to
I knew I would escape
And leave behind a nightmare
That could never become my dream
Surviving an environment
Which often consumed its prey
By not buying into its lies
Or ambiguity
I was no statistic
Someone’s lost cause
My hope
Was because of God
And I would
Let my guard down..
Only to the heavens
did I let my voice resound
And God was my guidance
To overcoming days long past
For this peace
That I’ve come to have
For always…I knew
Was but one I need relate
And for God
I took that leap of faith
