Never be ashamed of your history,
From some it should be hidden like a mystery.
Never be ashamed of your progress, Even though some will see it as you trying to impress.
Never be ashamed of your mess,
If you’ve used them to pass life’s tests.
Never be ashamed of who you’ve become,
If you’ve allowed your trials to help you overcome.
Never be afraid to laugh in spite of your pain,
Dance through your thundering rain,
Let your enemies think you are insane.
Never be ashamed to shine bright like the diamond you are,
Cause you know, it’s only His mercies, why you’ve made it this far.
