I have happiness in my heart and a thorn in my soul

Time to try

on June 14, 2013

I spent years in chains

Tied up by my pain

My soul ached to be free

No other way I knew to be

I felt sorry for myself

Didn’t think I needed help

Defensive and obtuse

I felt I had no place, no use

I dulled the ache with drugs

I prayed to God above

Desperate ’cause I dont believe

In a God who has any interest in me

I tried every trick in the book

Vacant, in life I barely partook

I hid myself away from all

If I don’t climb then I can’t fall

But now I see there’s joy for me

I just need to try whole heartedly

Face my problems, tackle my pain

Freedom is there and mine to gain
