I know I’ve let you down.
I’m desolate, confused and weak,
And Satan has me bound
My voice yells let me be!
Yet, my heart cries for help.
Floundering in this world of sin,
I cannot save myself.
Mother, please forgive me.
Can’t seem to get it right.
I’m angry, and I don’t know why.
I love you – still I fight.
It’s not because of you
This anger has me bound.
It’s really just a shield I wield,
As my dark world spins ‘round.
Fighting like a drowning child,
Please understand my plight.
I’ll have no one to save me, if
You two give up the fight.
I know I need you both,
Although the words won’t come.
If you two turn away from me,
Then, Satan’s pow’r has won.
I need to know you’re there,
In spite of how I act.
If you give up on me right now,
I’m lost, and that’s a fact.
So, love me still, although,
I am not lovable
Forgive me father, mother, please.
I know not what I do.
“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do…” Luke 23:34 KJV
