Crippled from my childhood memories,
and a past riddled in agony and pain;
I grew up confused of who I was,
and wondered if I was insane.
Crippled in my turbulent teenage years,
by the awkwardness of being shy;
I was so embarrassed of who I was,
that I really just wanted to die.
Crippled in my first relationship,
she hated her time with me;
She dropped me without a parachute,
another loser in a barren sea.
Crippled in my last try at marriage,
she had her own agenda from the start;
She stole two boys I loved so dear,
and left me with a broken heart.
Crippled from the lack of self respect,
that I almost ended it all;
But just as I threw myself of the cliff,
God caught me in mid-fall.
Crippled by guilt and unworthiness,
as he held me before his face;
I let him have my heart that day,
when he embraced me in his grace.
