I'm blinded by hatred
all the darkness's of war
and I can't figure out
what I was put here for

Cause while other people suffer
I'm shielded by despair
I need you to hear me
and answer this prayer

I can't see through the shadows
of everything I've been through
So, God, give me your eyes
So I can see well, too

The author's comments:
Brandon Heath's song, "Give me your eyes," was what inspired this! Also, everything I've been through. I connected with the song and while I was writing some poetry I started writing about God and I had this line and then... everything just came together. Enjoy!

Love, love, love this. It shows how lost we can be without God, but also shows that He's willing to help us. Amazing.
