Washed clean so long ago,
Though gone for good in my Father’s eyes,
Old thorns still haunt me so.
The evil one won’t let me be,
Those negative thoughts won’t end.
Full of anguish and self-doubt
I lose my way again.
Sometimes I have it all figured out,
Or at least I might believe.
One single word can trigger pain,
Alone, I start to grieve.
Life is hard for all of us,
And mine has taken some blows.
Somehow, I manage to keep on trying
To battle my secret foes.
I want so much to be contented,
To find purpose in each day.
But knowing this world is not my home,
I’m ready, if called away.
I’ve had joys and laughter aplenty,
And showers of blessings I claim.
But so many times I’m unable to silence
Those voices that fill me with shame.
These battles are hard, and I want to give up,
I’m tired from fighting this lot.
But as long as I’m able to wake up again,
I’ll keep giving it all that I’ve got.
I’m not trying to gain your pity,
It just helps to be able to share.
I know my strength is with our Savior,
But don’t mind if you lift me in prayer.
Yes, the crimson stain is washed away,
Because Jesus made sure it was so.
It is I…and I alone,
Who needs to learn to let go.
