Barryís Prayer 8/7/02
Traveling through these hard times
When life sent along rough rides
Makes you wonder why
God wants you to learn
how different types of people
will try and make you burn
Seems all that you really have
are the values learned as a child
When growing from small,
parents should have taught you
right from wrong
How to get along,
share and show compassion
Giving tools that when older,
praying you will make good
decisions.

But you seem to find
you spent not the time
to learn how to get by
when meanness arrives at your side

Then you are pressed,
put into a bind,
then you must make snap decisions,
to try and survive

Iíve never had the wit
to catch evil by surprise
I always end up in a tough bind
Usually happy to survive

Iím torn by what to do
My heart would be shattered
if I hurt them like I want to
But I canít live like this
anymore,
I almost died this last time, this is for
sure

God, you need to show me
what it is you want from me
I need a plan to show
the path I must go

I feel so lost, so all alone,
I know I screwed away
much of the life you gave to me
But Iím proud you chose
to give me another try

I need a strong helping hand
for alone this quest
is as much as dead

My hard-headed ways
always sent me the wrong way,
I know in my heart,
If left alone in this new start,
weíll meet sooner than should be.

Thereís too much love left in me
to be wasted, not used,
especially at this time
Mankind needs all it can find, to
survive,
Your love it seems to me is in great
need
The world is trying to erupt
This is not how we should be, will
You please help us learn the way to
live in peace

Life is very tough for a person like
me
I guess wrong decisions that seemed
right at the time, not
knowing better, put my life in this
bind

So I trudge along each day,
praying in my own way,
that one day I will find,
love that will satisfy
and make me feel whole

You know what I need the most
Please help me realize,
how to truly open and let you in,
Iíve tried but been denied
the Holy Ghost I need to find,
Before my life reaches the end
Amen.
