Tears of Joy

Tears of joy in unbelieving eyes

And leaves my family with surprise

Anxiety has changed me in so many ways

After so long, now just a passing phase


Now, my Lord has set me free!

From the shackles and chains that bound me!

Sometimes you'll have illness and pains

But I was released and I know He reigns


I used to struggle with my identity

Was I nurse, a mom? What was wrong with me?

I just needed to take a leap of faith so I leapt.

And grew wings. I flew. And like a baby I wept.


And no one who hasn't seen me believes it still

But soon enough I can assure you, they will

I can drive and I can go wherever I desire

I have been many things but i am no liar
