Repentance

It's not flesh and blood, the enemy we face
Our foe is not found, in some far off secret place.
But crashes down upon us, waves of despair,
And we moan for loss of purpose, faith in oneself.

Where do we go now, can peace at last be found?
When sleep brings no resting, when love can't be found,
In loathing myself, I lift my heart in prayer,
Heavy with wanting, filled with despair.

How deep into darkness can this sorrow go?
Please rescue me Lord, I don't want to know.
All I am is yours, and all I'll ever be.
Can goodness be found here in someone like me?

Will dawn break in my soul to save me from these chains?
Will your light warm my being and embrace me again?
Heavy in my burden brought upon me by myself,
I consider the hunger for your love while I'm in hell.

How deep into darrkness can this sorrow go?
Please rescue me Lord, I don't want to know.
All I am is yours, and all I'll ever be.
Can goodness be found here in someone like me, someone like me?
