Forgiven Addictions

Pain is like a crashing stream,
I felt like I need to scream,
But it’s too overwhelming,
So I just kept suffering,

I carried so much guilt,
Piling on like fire’s silt,
I know I should’ve asked for repentance,
But that means there would be consequence,

So I lived my life with fears,
Privately spilling tears,
I didn’t know what to do,
So the fear and pain just grew,

I couldn’t take it anymore,
So I opened your door,
I sat down in front of your place,
Crying out, “I don’t know how much more I can face,”

“I’m begging, please help me,
I’ve been living carelessly,
I need to change my ways,
Because I’ve learned sin never pays,”

“But I’m consumed by addiction,
Living life as fiction,
Not sure what is real,
Not sure how I feel,”

“I have different faces,
Only seen in certain places,
My soul is in agony,
Please set me free,”

You said, “My son,
I love you a ton,
I showed you with two wood lines,
So worry no more, because your mine.”
