He moved to Puerto Rico.
I really don't know why.
A fresh new beginning? Or a place to die?
He had liquid troubles that led him to despair.
Why'd he move to Puerto Rico?
Did he wonder? Did anybody care?
God in all His wisdom, held him in His hand,
brought him to a pinnacle to choose to fall or stand,
and from that scary precipice, a life began again.
The road was long and narrow with dangers on each side,
and dreams of memories of which he could not hide,
and left him at the bottom and a choice to decide.
To live, to die were the options that stared him in the face,
and held him in a prison of his own disgrace.
But love and prayer and giving, set his path to another place.
The journey wasn't easy to hope from despair,
but mother and sister’s love was greater and helped him out of there.
And God with His provision was always there,
Now his journey isn't over with many choices he has to make,
but now he has his family to share each step he takes,
and to show to us what a difference he makes.
