I did not wake up like this

I grew with love and happiness

my family kept me grounded and strong

my faith kept me where I belong

I might have my faults, don't we all?

But when looking in a mirror I don't see a flaw

Flawless; I did not wake up like this

It took a lot to achieve this bliss

when I see myself I see a fighter

with this spirit my future brighter

negative thoughts and doubts may hiss

I don't give into them, I did not wake up like this.
