Strong By Design

Monday, 01 November 2010 20:38 Written by  Jamenise Wilson

I emerged from the pain
Wipe away all of my tears
I made it through the storms
I live to fight again


There’s a warrior deep within
It rages from time to time
It gives me the strength to move on
I know I’m strong by design

I made it through the slums
Where the broken glass lay
They tried to make me stay
But my will was just to strong

I fought my way through
All the ignorance, the bullshit, and the lies
I climbed up out the gutters
When nobody thought I’d make it

I emerged from the pain
With my vengeance running deep
I’m fighting for my life
For any pain that I ever felt

For every tear that I have shed
I’m fighting for a cause
What don’t you understand
There’s been times when I’ve been down

And I didn’t think I’d make it
I raised my head up above
He gave me his strength
He told me to take it

I can endure all things
With God right by my side
I emerged from my pain
A new women

A new me
I stood face to face with defeat
But I’m still here
This is me

There’s a warrior deep inside
It rages from time to time
It gives me strength to move on
I am strong by design
