When I was a child
I used to gaze at the shining stars
I silently wished that someday
I would be like them
Enthroned would look up to me.

As the years passed
I had everything the world can offer
I’ve reached my destiny
But I was not satisfied
I reached out for more
Until I sold my life to the world.

I lived up to the standards of the world
Trying to please everyone I meet
Trying to cope up with the realities
And trying to face difficulties
But my strength failed me
Problems began to swallow me
And my life was falling apart

I began to question the existence of my life
I began to realize I need Jesus Christ
To help me carry the great burden
