Condemned


My long shadow drags behind
Falling
Rotating
Leaving me blind

Darkness comes
And covers my eyes
I open my mouth
But nothing cries

I look below
Just mud and yuck
I look above
Just more clouds mock me

There's nothing there
They scream at me
He does not care
They do declare

For God would save you
If He did exist
Why do you believe
When left in this mist

I look in front
No options appear
I look behind
And He is not near

WHERE ARE YOU NOW
WHEN I NEED YOU MOST
YOU SAID YOU'D BE THERE
YOU DID SO BOAST!

Calm down my child
He whispers to me
I did not leave
Nor did I sleep
Just wait and see
I'll bring you peace

But I call to Him
Please let me go
It is too much
I MUST let go

And so I fall
So far from sane
And so I fall
In His arms again

For this life I live
It makes no sense
For the violent walk
And I am condemned
