Remember My Mercy
It’s all out there and in here too,
the pain, confusion, and anxiety.
What is a person to do,
who lags in the virtue of piety.
It must be given to One
much more powerful than I,
And so I have done,
But not quite, so that’s a lie.
I take back what I have given,
and suffer it all over again,
though I’ve been forgiven.
Such is the haunting of sin.
How could I have ever done these things;
Is what the too proud ego sings.
