Here at the Lighthouse we have some extremely talented alumni! Below is a song written by one!
“My life is unmanageable.
With problems so untanigable.
There seems to be now way out.
I want to scream I want to shout.
My family tells me to go away.
When all I wanna do is stay.
They are tired of my insanity.
My life of lies and profanity.
I have no home, I have no house.
I’m just a loser and such a louse.
I am dirty and I’m showerless.
I am hopeless and I am powerless.
I’m so scared and full of fear.
I’m so afraid to look in the mirror.
To see myself staring back at me.
This is not the way I thought it would be.
I can’t believe the truth of my reflection.
I use to always strive for perfection.
I just wanted to be a lady.
But ended up broken and shady.
I’m on the edge, I’m on the brink.
I wanna use, I wanna drink.
I fall down on my knees, “God Hey”.
Help me God I plead to pray.
I cry, I beg, I scream hysterical.
I need you God, I need a miracle.
All of the sudden I feel peace.
The demon’s howl begins to cease.
You speak to me so sweet, so tender.
My life is yours I now surrender.
With you God is the only way.
Without you Lord I’m gonna stray.
Lord keep me humble, keep me small.
If I get too big I’m gonna fall.
You are the Master, I am your slave.
That’s the only way I can behave.
So take me God and change my life.
To be a good mother and be a good wife.
Help me reach out and offer my hand.
You are my Rock, on You I stand.
Please take my life I now give it up to Ya.
I say Amen, I praise Halleluiah.”
