Remove the revenge...remove the rage...remove the revulsion that drives me insane
God,please take the thorns that bring peril and pain
Thorns of trauma and torment,terror and tears
God,hear my prayers and take those thorns made of fear

Thorns of trauma...young mind torn to shreds by schools and swarms of invisible pirahnas
Deathbeat dramas march like puppets and play inside my head,heart,and soul
Take these thorns from my side and send them all home

Thorns of torment...they twist and they taunt
They stalk and they hunt their prey in and out of season
With no rhyme and no reason
Just for the fun of setting fires
Making timebombs tick till they tock and explode
Take these thorns from my side and send them all home

Thorns of terror...I paint the planet black cause there's a monster in the mirror
thought crimes becoming clearer
I'm becoming what i like least...bad man to boomerang to brutal beast
It keeps coming around like an endless carousel
It doesn't kill me but only makes me stronger...length of pain is getting longer as I walk this world alone
Take these thorns from my side and send them all home

Thorns of tears...tearing through the fabric of time now crystalized and clear
Thoughts I've had and deeds I've done
Divinity dreams that turned to demon dust
Regrets and remorse push my buttons until I scream...standing the storm as a solitary soul
Take these thorns from my side and send them all home

I beg and I plea until I finally get an answer
God is smiling down on me still I'm bent like Charlie Manson
He pays the ransom and sets my soul free
But He doesn't take the thorns and it doesn't murder me
His grace is sufficient for the world and for me

    Very deep write! Will keep you in my prayers as always. (Phil 4:6,7)

    How could He feel that we are saved if we don't let go of our baggage, since He gave His life because of it. You have to welcome the new dawn. Just wrote what came to mind from reading this excellent write. Hope it wasn't out of place. Thanks for sharing, Caroline.

    Very interesting write that expresses the writer's torment of inward struggles and past mistakes that doesn't really find release but finds comfort in the sacrifice of the Lord. I do have to say that the Lord also wants you to be liberated from those thorns. Sometimes we keep them in because they have become a familiar companion that almost makes us feel alive. But sometimes we also need to turn in the 180 degree direction and let go of the baggage, especially if one believes in Him.

    Anthony, my friend! your thorns seem to be deep.. gosh i wish i had your passion to write like this.. well i guess some of us are still seen by the light no matter how big the turn is.. i'm glad God does not judge.. what we are.. until the one day.. but to tell you the truth .. I think God has high standards.. and i don;t walk with them.. sure enjoyed your write.. p.d.
