Where Would I Be?

Where would I be without you lord?
If you didn't allow me to be sick
And be at the point of death
I wouldn't have known you
My family and I we would be perishing for eternity
If you didn't allow me to be born in a poor family
I wouldn't have became the strong woman I am today
I wouldn't have known the true meaning of
Ubuntu, empathy and love
If you didn't hide my beauty with acne, ugly teeth and bad hair when I was in high school
I wouldn't have finished school and went to university
Had I had my beautiful face, body and smile
I was gonna think im the hot shot
And ended up being a teen mom just like my mother
Worse contracted HIV
If you didn't allow me to go to school with an empty stomack
I wouldn't have had a driving force pushing me to study hard
To get that matric certificate and that degree
So I can make something of myself
And be able to provide for my famiy
If you didn't allow the hurt, anger, pain and betrayal
I wouldn't have known the true meaning of forgiveness
If you hadn't allowed me to experience too many failed relationships
I wouldn't have learned to appreciate my one true love
If didn't allow failure and disappointment
I wouldn't have learned what it means To bounce back
If you hadn't given me a dream and a promise
I would have learned what patience means
And what it means to wait upon the lord
If you didn't allow the dark days
I wouldn't have learned to say
' in the morning the sun is gonna shine'
If you didn't allow the storms
I wouldn't have learned to stand and look beyond the storm
And say
' this too shall pass'
If you hadn't brought all the challenges, problems, misfortunes, rejection, betrayal and pain
I wouldn't have known you
And I wouldn't have had the good times
And gotten to enjoy the victories, joy and blessing you gave me
