Little Sister

Little sister,
Little sister,
Hear my call.
I can't catch you,
For you're not falling.
You're drowning,
In a sea of sin.
I wish the way to pull you out was to put myself in.
But the only way out,
Is to ask God to forgive you of your sins.
The task is easy.
The hard part is trying not to jump back in.
I can only hold you so much.
Until the devil pulls you away and wins.
Little sister,
Little sister,
I'd carry your sin.
But my blood is too thin.
Give your heart to Jesus,
It's the only way to save you from your sin.

I love the tone of this poem, it's so heartbreaking and pleading :( but it's a good poem :)
