Never Been Happier

~By Amanda Sielu Paris


Whoever said that high school was best days of your life
Was obviously Homecoming Queen
And whoever said college was the only direction
Never dared to dream
'Cause I can honestly say I've found myself
Found my place
Beginning to overcome my doubt
And I can honestly say

I've never been happier
Never saw the sun like I do today
Never stood any taller
God has truly blessed me
And I'm standing here happier today
Happier than I was yesterday

My family supported me through the transition
The catapillar into the butterfly
They were the love and belief I needed
My best friends helped me laugh my way through
Created memories that I can carry with me
Then I have the one that completes me
He's my strength and everything that makes me strong
I can truly say I've never been happier

I can honestly say I've never been more content
Truly say I'm at peace with who I am
Coming into my own, creating my own shadow
Rising about who I was
And I can truly say I've never been happier
