I've known......

byrose butterfly©

I've known love
And I've known pain
The loss at times unbearable
Overwhelming feelings of shame.

I've had it all
And watched it fall
Because of my selfishness
And my self pity.

I try to get a grip
A handle on my life
Sometimes I feel
I'm running out of control.

I know my wrongs
The pain I've caused
How do I make it up
How do I forgive myself.

Life is calling
It doesn't stop, doesn't wait
Help me Lord to move forward
To accept my wrongs and strive to do better.
