Be The Voice
by Stefani Bush
I’ve been down this road
With the wind at my face
I’ve tried to be brave
And keep with the pace
Sometimes full speed
Is really reverse
And sometimes the blessing
Is also a curse
Sometimes our weakness
Becomes a great strength
Sometimes we struggle
To go a short length
Sometimes it’s scary
And you feel so alone
Sometimes you wish
That your heart had a home
In a world where normal
Is never the norm
You’ll find your peace
In the midst of this storm
You’ll find your courage
To hold your head high
You’ll find the strength
To look up to the sky
You’ll find the wisdom
To make the right choice
You’ll find the spirit
To be the voice.
