RESTRUCTURE MY LIFE

I may have lost my way unknowingly

Or in deception of sin wondered presumptuously

Never gossip fellow brethren

my sisters don't mock

Give a shoulder to lean on if I stumble

Reach out a hand to lift me up if I fall

If you could do not deny me a constant smile

A gesture of assurance, 'it's going to be alright'

It dissolves self criticism and hatrate out

Sweeps clean a biased view of my world

And assures someone who cares for my come back

My dear brother over there felt my pain

My sister here beside prayed for me

That little Jane in blue sang for me

And those elderly brethren counseled me

Jesus pardoned and gave grace

It wasn't a man but a brother I met

Neither was it a girl other than a sister

A community of harmonious beings ever smiling

An atmosphere not born of freedom from pain

They chose to ignore it and counted their roses

And not the number of thorns in their roses

I had wasted all and sold myself to sin

Squandered all that GOD freely gave

And in depravity awaited some terrible retribution

When a gentle touch felt my shoulders

Heavenly light illuminated the dark chambers of my soul

This is why I am here with you

At a church that restructured my life
