This is one of my favorite poems! After you realize that you made it through the problems, you can walk with a new pride in your step!



Look up at the sky
No more looking on the ground
You’re victorious not defeated
You have no more reasons to frown
This time you can say you made it
This time you can say you won
You’ve passed the test
With a job well done
I can look at myself now
And see the beautiful woman that I am
I see myself as God sees me
I now see the Master’s plan
This is my life
And I think I’ve lived it well
I’m looking forward to many more tomorrows
I’m playing the hand that’s been dealt
I’m looking up towards the clouds
The mighty God I serve
Has granted me the best blessing of all
A brand new grace that I don’t even deserve

I’ve got my head held high
No more can another human being influence
The way that I feel about who I am
For I now have better sense
