My Testimony (One Year)

A testimony in the making,
One Year on the journey.
For I will not be forsaken.

Here on Earth, my heart is yours.
He took my place in hell for three days.
You gave up a crown and a throne,
for a cross and a grave

Today, I will break free of my past,
be buried in the water and
come up clean and free
of my sins.

All this done in one year,
He changed my life, took the
old me and today,
I was made brand-new.

About this poem

For 15 years, from my freshman year of High school to a year ago, I allowed people to tell me who I was and who I was supposed to act like.. I allowed the people who didn't like me or care about me effect my future, and my past.. but HERE in the present, my friend Jesus saved my life through a Celebrate Recovery group. So this my testimony through poetry.
