TITLE: Giving Up On Me

Hello to all my fabulous faithwriter friends! Hope you are all doing well.

A while back I had posted a couple blurbs on the poetry section of the critique circle which were simply titled untitled 1 and untitled 2. These were both incomplete ideas that I had planned to expanding after getting a bit of advice-to those of you who commented I extend my thanks.

Here is the song that has come of them. Please let me know what you think, your opinions are always appreciated!
Wish I could escape from this place.
Just when I think I got it right,
everything blows up in my face.
Life never seems smooth for me.
This world says balance is something
That can never be achievedÖ

I know this way of thinking isnít right,
But my God, this dark world
Makes it so hard to see Your light.

So here I am,
Giving up on me again.
Holding up open hands.
Letting go of all I can.
Completely giving up
On who I am.

This world tries to tell me itís right.
Tries hard to fill my head with lies.
Says I dove too fast into life.
Everyone calls this world home.
Iím surrounded by so many,
Yet, here I feel so alone.

I know this way of thinking isnít right,
But my God, this dark world
Makes it so hard to see Your light.

So here I am,
Giving up on me again.
Holding up open hands.
Letting go of all I can.
Completely giving up
On who I am.

This worldís no help or friend to me.
Its advice I just donít need.
It tells me all I need is me.
Those words I used to believe.
Iíve learned the hard way itís not true
Now Iím giving up on me


And now thereís nothing left for me to do.
Ďcause the only one who can change meÖ
Is You.

So here I am,
Giving up on me again.
Holding up open hands.
Letting go of all I can.
Completely giving up
On who I am.

So here I am.
Giving up my life again.
Holding up open hands.
Letting go of all I can.
Giving up on who I am.
And giving in to Your plansÖ

Lord, here I am.
