Once my world was good.  Now, I surrender to what my life has become.  In my surrender I will find hope once again.  I am no longer a victim.  I take responsibility for my life. No longer hiding in fear or seeking the dark loneliness of difference, I reclaim my place in this world.  I will own my truth wherever it may take me.  Give me the hope and faith to always keep moving and growing.  Open my eyes to the wonder of the world around me.  Open my mind to the wonder of the world I cannot see.  Open my soul to the wonder of being connected in love.  Free me from myself.  Show me the happiness that comes from bringing comfort rather than pain, connection rather than isolation.
