What I didn’t do was believe at the time,
When I allowed fear to swallow me,
And destroy me and tear me to pieces,
Because the pain was the closest,
I thought I felt, to being alive,
And how wrong was I to believe so.
Because it wasn’t the truth at all,
It was a pain that I couldn’t stop,
A pain that over time kept growing,
And I didn’t know how much I was hurting,
Till I came down, on my knees,
Asking for mercy hundreds of times,
But leaving without believing my words.
You see, all I had to do was to believe,
And trust it would be alright.
I know I’m a sinner, I know we all are,
We ALL are capable of good and evil,
And that’s the way I know it.
But showing compassion to the ones,
Who’ve hurt you and me…is the greatest,
The GREATEST strength in the world.
No matter what anyone says.
I ask for your forgiveness,
As you ask for mine… to show more love to others around.
