I looked at others to seek happiness,
but true happiness comes from within me.
I looked for an outward source of light,
when I was in darkness,
but the light was inside myself,
waiting to be ignited.
I looked for help to heal my pain,
but my coping tools lied within me.
I searched for outside solutions for my recovery,
but the answers were always inside me.
I looked and leaned on others for strength,
but the strength was inside me.
I looked anywhere but where I was to make my dreams come true,
but I looked too far, because only I can make my dreams come true.
I looked far off into the horizon to find hope,
but hope can only come from within me.
My entire life I searched for something outside myself,
but the answer to everything has always been inside me.
I found God and He has always been with me,
patiently waiting for me to find Him,
know Him and love Him.
He has always loved me,
been a force behind me,
and gave me the strength I needed.
God is the key to my happiness
and the solution for my pain, problems and worries.
God is the answer for my recovery
and the reason for my life.

are tiny mattters compared to
what lies within us.”
