Second By Second

the odds were against me,
no one was around to help me

life felt like it was slipping away
with each passing second

I was afraid
I would not exist anymore,
I was knocking on death’s door

Only God could save me.
Only He could pull me through
the darkness I was about to face

Second by second,
I had to lean on Him.
I am still leaning on Him for dear life.
