For many years, I felt the world
Had isolated me;
But many years have passed and now
I can begin to see;
That all the while, I felt alone
It was the best for me!
The world had been unkind,
I had lost my fight, I was in flight;
I had no clue.
Where could I go? What was there
But like the sand left to pearl,
Like the seed that grows to flower;
I am lovelier having reposed.
I am ready to shine in MY finest hour.
