Forgive Me, Father


Help me, Father, I have wandered off the path you so carefully described to me.
I am lost in this world, one where I do not belong.
I am slowly forgetting your lessons and letting you down.
Please come find me, Father, I beg of you.
I am surrounded by demons of my own making.
I have forgotten your words, Father, I cannot hear your voice above the din in my ears.
Save me, Father, I am not capable of your bravery.
Love me again, Father, though I have filled your heart with bitter disappointment.
Speak my name again, Father, and tell me that you can forgive me my sins.

I like to talk. I also like to listen. Leave me your thoughts.
