I know you protect me,
but why do I feel so weak?
You love me,
and hold me,
comfort me deep,
but why do I feel so lonely?
I know you rescue me,
remove me from the mire and bile,
but why are these chains still on my wrists?
You keep me,
whisper to me,
know my deepest dreams,
but why do the nightmares still persist?
I know you listen to me,
show me what is true,
but why do these prayers seem unheard by you?
free me from this life that persists.
