I screamed to God out of frustration After another day of waking and hating the fact
That I'm still where I'm at, what's the point of all of this
'Cause I'm not seeming to find it

Is it meaningless? I search the reason behind it Because these moments seem to drag on forever And these years on end seem to have never been this Desperation has formed repetition within to insecure, to pretend And I'm too weak to defend 
Here it comes again all in my world Again left with no direction, no beginning, no end
The days blend together and the weather never changes Numb to the outcome but yet not quite painless
 Aimless to whether or not I made a mistake And if so, how far is too far? Before it's too late Should I wait but then what would be too long
To reverse the effects if I was wrong  Hindsight is a beautiful thing
When you can look back
And see what patience And time can bring 
Is it a must that I'm here?
Is it a must that I stay in order to look forward?
Must I look away? We're moving towards a new day Unsure of what tomorrow will bring our way

I'm not even quite sure of what this day holds I say we travel the unknown and watch it unfold Hold today close while still reaching for tomorrow Through the test of time, I've seen joy overcome sorrow

So with every trial I endure with hopes To mature into what I was created For more than life itself, I want life itself Press past the present until forever is felt

And take hold of the hidden mystery wide-eyed and open
I now see differently, if it's to be then give me the strength To be content and find peace in knowing One day it will all make sense  Hindsight is a beautiful thing
When you can look back
And see what patience And time can bring  Learning to accept the unexpected Because the unknown wasn't here for me to correct it
So I let it go and stopped trying to control the impossible Simply put tossed in the shuffle At a young age just like everyone else

So I don't feel sorry for you or for myself Love is bigger than that
And I'm not below or above the way it moves Even though the things it does to my train of thought Can bring about doubt and uncertainty  Patience tends to not agree with my psyche That's more than likely, just some pride in me Fighting expectations of where I think my life should be Selfishly I forget, so quickly let me never forget

Lord, break me in humility Some sort of amazing grace on me
As I look back upon my life
And where You've taken me
 Hindsight is a beautiful thing
When you can look back
And see what patience And time can bring 
Hear the call, peace fall from trial to triumph I want your hand in it all Allow me to know where to stand in it all
Life giver
