Nothing I can do or say

Will make Gods’ love go away


Even when I do what I should

God doesn’t love me more because I’m good


I try to live life and experience contentment

I reach out to others and receive their resentment


The pain I endured has stayed with me

I am fearful I won’t be the person I should be


I don’t want to stay at the fork in life’s road

And lack the spirit to be bold


This decision

Makes me feel I’m in prison


Unable to choose

It gives me the blues


Both choices should be good

And it doesn’t matter if I am misunderstood


I have the responsibility

To create my own tranquility


The Spirit from above

Gives me the desire to self-love


I do now concede

That I am freed


To live my life

With a lot less strife
