“Sometimes life becomes a ball of confusion
A web of right and wrong turns
And our understanding leads us toward misleading truths
Causing a downfall of mistrust of others and self
Which looks like self-destruction.
These thoughts and feelings are more normal and common than one may know.

If you’ll allow,
I’ll help guide you through a journey of your own story
By affording a better understanding of self
Acceptance of your past
Living in your present
With ability of reward and relief into your future.”
