It Took Time

"It Took Time" —Messalinda, 14

 

Losing my voice made it hard for me

They wouldn't listen

Making a thought complete was harder still

No conversation

They want to see what is wrong

And I just want to tell them

Without a piece of paper

Without a piece of paper

 

It took time for my voice to return

And when it did, I was happy

And now it's back, I grow stronger still

And I sing 'cause I've found me

I found me

Yeah, I found me

 

I'm glad I asked for help

Even though they thought I was lying

Now knowing what is wrong

They're by my side always

Cheering me on to fight and continue on

I'm so glad that I don't need that paper

 

It took time for my voice to return

And when it did, I was happy

And now it's back, I grow stronger still

And I sing 'cause I've found me

I found me

Yeah, I found me

 

You taught me things I never knew before

Now that I've learned my lesson

It's time to go

 

It took time for my voice to return

And when it did, I was happy

And now it's back, I grow stronger still

And I sing 'cause I've found me

I found me

Yeah, I found me

I found me

Yeah, I found me
