Wow, thanks! My head is starting to swell.
I set out on my path, I did,
down a long and winding road.
Some bumps, some holes, some crooks, some bends
setting forth so bold, I did.
Skipped merrily down a cherry lane
Hopped past the blueberry patch
Jumped laughing through the poppy fields
Landing in the strawberry patch.
Then one day the road was worn
I tripped and scraped my knees.
The joy and laughter escaped me,
It left so suddenly.
I used to leap so high over bumps... I did.
Feet moving fast as light,
never faltering, always steady
But now something is not right.
My eyes well up with tears each time
I fall into a hole
It didn't used to bother me
But now I'm bruised and cold.
The path is so empty now
I can't hear when the birds sing
A deafness has fallen over me
No longer a soul whispering.
Spirit, please come rescue me
Protect me from harms way
A stranger has come uninvited
So resistant to casting away.
He laughs at my misfortune
Guffaws at my mistakes
Cackles over my loneliness
Finds joy in my bad faith.
I need you, Spirit, please hear my plea
for the time is getting late.
The leaves are falling from the trees
the branches easy to break.
Would you understand me Spirit
When I say I'm losing faith?
No, not in the Almighty,
but trusting in my fate?
I'm feeling alone, and terrified
in places I should not be.
I'm embarrassed that I'm falling short
of the person you want me to be.
So I beg you, Lord, my God on high
PLEASE be with me this time
Forgive me for any sins I've committed
from not being in my right mind.
