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.
