SONNET

 

What can I say if my heart is breaking
Words don't disguise or take away the pain
You don't see me for the mess I'm making
Deep in your hearts you still think I'm insane
You read the evidence in the wrong way
You shed tears of pity for your own sake
You would think me a fool because I pray
I give, but not the things that you will take
I love you, but not in a way you know
I would help you, I would help you to see
But can you believe in a pit below
And God above, living eternally?
   It is not strange that you don't understand
   But I hope your redemption has been planned.
