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
