When I felt I was lost, I was found,
For I couldn’t know I was lost
Unless I had a context of being where I was.
When I felt I was unloved, I was loving myself,
For I was acknowledging
My human needs and feelings.
When I felt afraid, I was the bravest of all,
For it takes tremendous courage to face
Scary thoughts and feelings square on.
And when I thought I had no hope,
I had tremendous hope,
For things could never get better
If I couldn’t see where I am now,
And have a sense of needing to change.
And so I realize
I’ve been on the other side of the garden wall
