Swallow Me Whole

Lord, I’m trying.

All my life I never fitted in with others around me.

You’re too much of a good girl!

You’re a lame!

Try living a little!

They would say.

I don’t like being a outcast..

So I give in.

I give into the pressures of the world around me.

I’m not a lame!

I’m not a good girl!

I want to live!

Day by day… I am loosing myself.

Being like the world has consumed my soul.

How can I be in a room full of people, but still feel alone?

Lord, I’m trying.

I know right from wrong.

Yet, I choose wrong.

I so badly want to be in with the in crowed!

But, at what cost?

Lord, I’m trying!

My body wants to feel good.

But my soul is crying out for salvation!

Lord, I’m trying!

I don’t want to be loss anymore.

I don’t want to be like everyone else.

I want to be at peace!

Lord I’m trying!

I decided to hold my head high.

I decided to embrace the inner voice within me.

I decided to live and not die!

Lord…I’m…trying.

All I ask…

Is… to… never… give… up… on… me.
