My story

I would like to tell you my story
Itís is very simple no guts and glory
It started on the day I was born
It was on a very cold winters morn

I was made a Catholic at six months old
At least thatís what Iíve been told
Baptised in church with family and friends
Believed to stay Catholic until my life ends

But when I was eight I started to doubt
And around me all people where so devout
I wondered why their faith was so strong
And where on this earth I did belong

At age thirteen I turned my back on the church
I wanted the truth so I started to search
I looked left and right but nothing I could find
I guess at that time I must have been blind

Almost seventeen years I continued to look
I tried searching the net and reading a book
Until one beautiful day I opened my eyes
And I saw the truth to my great surprise

But I took my time and continued to ask
And all questions where answered it was a big task
So one day it was raining and I got ready to leave
And all I could think of was this belief

So at the end of the day I returned home
I found the path no more need to roam
I took my shahada with faith in my heart
And this was the day that my life did start

So for all of the people who still live in doubt
I want to show you what this faith is about
This religion is pure and it is true
And if you listen you might see it too

For this I will pray the rest of my life
This is my goal for which I will strife
And at the end of the road the last words Iíll say
Will be the shahada and for this I will pray
