Guidance and Salvation

.



I lived my life the best I could.

Yet she still hates me and she should.

But if I could be with her, I would.

I need guidance, to know if my future is good.

Tell me, should I continue to write?

What is the purpose of my fight?

Help me make sense.

This one is for the audience.

Say I didn't waste my life.

Say we didn't have broken hearts.

Say we lived happy lives.

Say I know what  to do with my life.

I lived my life because I care.

Yet she still makes my life a nightmare.

But if I had the chance to leave her, I'd just sit and stare.

I need salvation, the chance to breathe in air.

Tell me, should I continue to write?

What is the purpose of my fight?

Give me guidance.

Help me make sense.

This one is for the audience.

Say I lived carelessly.

Say I could peacefully dream.

Say I didn't feel like I'm dead.

Say I didn't kick Jesus out of my soul.

Tell me, should I continue to write?

What is the purpose of my fight?

Give me guidance.

Help me make sense.

This one is for the audience.

Say we loved our children.

Say we loved each other.

Say things could have been different.

Say there is still hope.

Say our lives were'nt such a mess.

Say we can peacfully rest.

    Dear Joseph this write is so heart wrenching- and never is a life a waste of time or effort! We would have to say Sun stop shinning for we a re a waste of your time- because of the things doone to each other and this earth- but NO while there is still time and Grace there is always HOPE. Be brave, be determined to always do what is right no matter what and your outcome will be secure. Life doesn't always turn out as we would desire but only good can come out of good eh! : ) love and blessings, Bren
