Prayer to Carry Me

Prayer to Carry Me


Lord, help me to exfoliate 
From the skins within sin
Rid me of my sins 
And give them to the dead sea
Without you, I’m not the same me
I’m someone different, but not so “originique”
I gotta be “originique”, 
Cause that’s how you created me
If I stray away, I’m just insane 
And the thought of losing my sanity
Is enough to make the world go crazy.
Trust and believe, it’s not what they want to see
Lord, you know it gets ugly
So I ask you to protect me
To guide me and lead me in the right direction
So when I step foot in the door 
There’s never an objection
And you’re my only obsession
I’ll never have to “want” for anything
As long as you’re surrounding me
So I’ll walk in your footsteps
As you carry me through these rocky mountains
And cool-calming seas
