hear me

Written by: Ann-Aisha Hamjali

Alone as I shed tears I am rotten and unkempt

Oh God! Please help, hear me as I repent

I’m crying my heart out as loud as a piercing scream

I am broken and torn apart in irreparable pieces I deem

As my body loses its own last control of breath

Just before the labyrinth of my own torture of death

I beg You, oh God! To please save me for all my sin

For I wanted to be freed from guilt eating me deep within
