    Dear Lord
    I've come to you today
    To reveal myself and
    Admit my mistakes.
    I've been living life too fast
    And it took my momma to say
    "Girl, you need to take a minute to pray."
    Of which, I am ashamed
    So I'm glad you called my name
    Now I will take a minute to pray.

    Dear Lord,
    Please help me to keep my faith.
    Temptation is hell, just to be frank.
    Every day,
    I hear the 7 deadly sins
    Call my name.
    Which I hate.
    Please show me the way.

    Dear Lord,
    Please forgive me for my sinful lifestyle.
    I know that its wrong to you, but my love is worthwhile.
    Chrystal is my soul, my heart, and my mind.
    I don't believe anyone could give me her 1-of-a-kind
    Love; I mean she is truly like no other!
    I don't believe I could ever go to another.
    As much as I hate I'm being sinful to you,
    I don't think I could really, truly give up my boo.

    Dear Lord,
    Now to get into deeper insight.
    You've blessed me with the talent to see things under light.
    Please don't take me from the wings of poetic flight.
    Please keep my mind correct and my qualities right.
    In the few years I have lived
    I've learned
    that to receive, you must learn to give
    Unselfishly, we must learn the Golden Rule,
    "Do unto others as you want done unto you."
    You've shown me how to appreciate
    the things you have made,
    And I don't know what would happen if that was taken away.

    For I love everything in the world
    you have made,
    I love the trees, streets, and both night and day.
    The saying "The world is my oyster" doesn't compart to how I see
    All the things you have given me,
    To write my poetry,
    To inspire me,
    The way it does, deeply and frequently,
    I absolutely love what you have given me.

    Dear Lord,
    Now I see
    You have put me here to be me,
    I cannot crawl anymore for
    I'm not a baby,
    I cannot depend on anyone to guide me,
    I have to live my life freely,
    I thank you for showing me,
    For giving me life,
    Now that I have prayed,
    I feel no heartache or strife,
    Goodnight.

    Unto Jesus' name I pray,
    Amen.
