Feeling like a complete failure
Going to bed
waking up the next morning
hiding of shame

I'm stuck in a place
and need to push myself past
I'm losing energy
I need help

I would say
a riddle to myself
keep searching and you will find
the pain that lies behind my eyes

It goes the same for you
My God
I hear you saying that to me
I would find

I would find 
and stopped reading
but it's the same message 
every time

I want that to be
our way of life
our routine
counsel from written words

I want you do show me
like I showed you
in a reasoning manner
not demanding

Each has they're own
decisions to make
choices to make
way they live they're life

We may have very different consciences
But it doesn't mean 
ones right 
and the others wrong

These are things 
I try to show you
to help you understand
my reasoning comes from the scriptures

It always has 
all our fights
and thoughts on matters
never really agreed

So matter do 
others don't
I hope you can see that
that might change

We can't control 
the others conscience
it comes naturally on it own
it only through scripture and understand

We might live separate lives
we might live one
but it's our own standing against God
not with each other
