God’s Miracle Gift

Why do you cry little one
God asked the little girl in bed
God you don’t know the dark things
That go on inside my head

I don’t know where death is
But it’s a place I want to go
I can’t live like this no more
Not with the things I know

I can’t tell you everything
You might not like me too
I can’t live in my skin no more
Take me home with you

But little one it’s not time yet
And I have plans for you
You are a work in progress
Your pains will soon be few

You will grow up and be beautiful
Just like the butterfly
You will come out of your cocoon
You will learn the reasons why

I chose you for this life of trials
Cause I knew you would be fine
To go out there and show the world
How to be sweet and kind

So you see I’ve had my master plan
And I needed a star like you
To teach the world some truths
That only you could do

So take my hand and walk with me
Your life is about to change
No more tears no more sorrow
God’s gift is no more pain

To My Disease of Overeating

You’ve held me captive forever
Ever since I was about ten.
You stole my body from me
I’ve hated me since then.

I grew up teased and hated
But I couldn’t stop you see.
You had a very firm grip on me
You wouldn’t set me free.

I’m here to tell you something
I’m taking my power back.
Food is not my enemy now
God freed me from your attack.

One day at a time
I will fight you every day.
And all my friends in recovery
Will help along the way.

We are an army of successes
We give each other hope.
We’ve come together to fight you
Today we’ve learned to cope.

So go away for good now
I am standing strong.
God is now my friend
I won’t be this size for long.
