I used to be a mean man
my hatred's for everyone.
If it wasn't with my fist
I would threaten with a gun.

I was looking for trouble
in everything I would do.
I bet you can't imagine
what hell I would put them through.

My youth had been abusive
beatings happened everyday.
I wanted to get even
all the people had to pay.

I put myself in danger
I was trying to get killed.
My life had been one of strife
the anger in me would build.

Should have died so many times
all the things I put me through.
Wandered 'round the place I found
never knowing what to do.

A stranger stood upon a rock
he talked about this God
He said I should call on Him
to me seemed very odd.

If I wanted to be blessed
I would have to learn to pray.
He told us to bow our heads
so he could show us the way.

I asked to be forgiven.
The strength to stop this hate.
The anger that was in me
now begun to dissipate.

Each time something tore me down
I would bow and call on Him.
He would bless each thing I do
my future's not so dim.

Seems like things have turned around
when I talk to God each day.
He promised to be constant
always showing me the way.

Now that I have changed my life
He helps me with what I bear.
He's taken away the hatred
He has shown me how to care.

The anger that raged in me
is gone and now I find.
A love that surrounds my soul
blesses me with peace of mind.

This is really lovely. I could so relate to many of the feelings you described. My heart hurt for the pain of the MC. Life isn't always fair, but how wonderful to know that Jesus really cares.
