I got what I was hoping for
A phone call to change my life
I had been praying for this phone call – any phone call
I had tried so many times.
You see, this phone call is my ticket to freedom
A chance to get out of here.
So today I got a phone call
And I was smiling from ear to ear.
I have been in the doldrums for a while, mostly self-imposed mind you.
Hoping, praying for change, but it wasn’t forthcoming – no matter how many times I tried
So with this phone call an opportunity appears
A chance to start anew
To not make the same mistakes again
Please, no more mistakes again.
To focus on the future – learning from the past
Moving forward – always forward
Hoping the rest will fall into place.
I am thankful for those around me that I will always call my friends
But I couldn’t ignore this phone call
It is time to make amends.
