I Will Rise
Though the sun does not shine
Though the night seems not to cease
I don’t hear the birds whistling in the trees.
I’m filled with pain and misery
I can’t see where I’m headed
I can’t fee what’s around me,
In this dark and lonely place.
How did I get here?
Please someone…, tell me how…?
How could I allow myself to fall?
How could I be so blind and not see
What I was doing wrong
How could I allow this to happen?
Where were the one’s I called friends?
Where were they when I called for help?
Where, can someone tell me where?
I’m left all alone to defend for myself
All alone in a place of the unknown,
I fell to my knees
In the mist of my distress,
And cried, “Why, why me.”
Then I remember the promise I made
I’ve broken my vow
I made unto you.
I’m ashamed and not worthy to be called your child.
I’m sorry for what I have put you through,
I’m sorry for the shame
But, please dear Lord forgive me
And accept me back as your dear child.
