Hear Me Out Dad
You keep my heart eternally speechless
Your mercer I do not deserve
My soul can't give you enough praise
But I'll try to put it into words.
Thank you for all that you've given me
And I'll start at the Cross
You shed all your blood for me
So this is for you a love that will not be lost.
Thank you for providing food
When I was wondering in the streets
Thank you for when I slept in the below zero weather
That your love provided me heat.
Thank you for the random people
Who reminded me you had a plan
Many had attempted to end me
But my life was in your hands.
Thank you for my Talents
Just tell me how to use them
I love being able to do anything to do anything with a pen
Just don't let me abuse them.
Thank you for the hardships, trials and suffering
I know it was all for spiritual toughening
Now would you please forgive me
For I have done endless worry
I've done some unspeakable things
Why do you keep me here?....I should have been dead and gone.
Forgive me for my bitterness
And often my hate towards you
Yet in spite you gave me direction
When I didn't know what to do.
Forgive me for the blessings
I often spit in your face
You delivered me from Jail, Misery and Addiction
But just had to go get another taste.
Forgive me for not being there for my daughters
I look at them and get mad
Cause I can't love my girls properly
Still being mad at my dad.
Forgive me for hating my mom
But thank you for Benji for Annette
Their love was almost close to yours
That blessing I'll never forget.
