    I sit on a chair facing a round table
    Bones weak, muscle aches- unable
    I lay my hands on my lap
    Thoughts of prayer, I grab
    Seeking help from start to end
    Though my mind can't trend
    I could feel my angel has led
    At this time, what my soul has craved

    Accusing faces I don't seem to know
    Pointing fingers and eyes glow
    In anger, cheeks are blown away
    With rush of blood-flushed and gray
    Silently-a second- my eyes are closed
    For strength at this hour I can't lose
    Your hand-Lord-must hold me up
    To draw me up from nearing collapse

    They say words, I don't understand
    Pressing faults, neither I do nor I withstand
    Accusers ears bolted, no time to hear
    Voices high - full of lies and err
    Every phrase they blare is not fair
    What they believe, they hold it clear

    At this hour, I'm seeking what is right
    I want to correct and put everything to light
    My desire, I intend to let them hear my side
    Clear my name and tell them what myself-abide
    But their intent is to push me against the wall
    So to show they are upright, and I am left to lament
    my befall..

    Oh Lord, I must step out awhile from this disgrace
    To know how lovely is your stead and grace
    I want to walk with you where green vales I see
    To where my scourge body lies and could be
    And hear the thunder of storm, feel the rain
    And wash up me clean, away from this bane

    In your world ,Oh Lord, the flowers have bloomed
    But my eyes are tired and always in gloom
    How can I appreciate, your lovely and perfect creation
    If I am on this state, full woe and depression
    Full of anger, full of disdain- I have contained
    You, I can rely, to come and release me from chain

    What else shall I long, this life may be bright
    As bright as the morning sunrise, I see light
    From the night so dark and soaked with tears
    My restless limbs and thoughts reign all fears
    I come by to a musing and lonely stream
    And it sings a melodious praise, to reclaim my
    vanishing dream..
