12 Steps Up


I longed to become
What I knew I could be
Through the long lost years
I searched for the key
That would open the door
To set me free
As a spirit held captive my soul and
I could not see

I had gone the last mile
To the valley below
In the darkness I groped
There was no place to go
Then a voice said to me
There were steps I could find
So I took my first step
Caught my first glimpse of light
And left darkness behind

There were hands reaching out
And voices to say
“We can lead you up
We came the same way”
There were 12 steps to take
Steps I knew I could make
For a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path
Caused each chain to break


“Be inspired, be blessed”
