At one time hurt
   confused and ashamed
      over things that you had endured

Now steadier hands
   more self-confident stance
      your footsteps are more secure

Many pitfalls and traps
   have lain ‘fore your feet
      when you feared you would never survive

Yet with continuing effort
   and help from your friends
      you’re learning now how to thrive

And though at one time
   if you looked for hope
      chances are you found less than zero

Now each day brings you closer
   to full victory
      and the day you become your own hero
