    For one second

    For one second
    I entertained your demons
    Tried to walk in the curse
    That was especially designed for you
    But my father intervened
    And sad, Not so
    I have better things for you
    For one second
    I tried to understand
    What it must be like to be you
    To have a life put on you
    That you did not understand
    From birth you were chosen to bear this sin
    But my father intervened
    And said, Not so
    I have better things for you
    For one second
    I abstained from fighting back
    Just to see if you would repent
    To see if you would come correct
    I tried to be an example for you to follow
    Only to find out that you didn't have the
    Cares of the people at heart
    Only the promotion of you
    But my Father intervened
    And said, Not so
    I have better things for you
    For one second
    I remembered the past
    And how I even walked the same road
    Saw the same sins
    Felt the same pain
    And had the same demons overtake me
    And I started to step in
    But my Father intervened
    And said, Not so
    I have better things for you

    Thanks for the response

    This one comes from the heart of one who is tired of carrying the burdens of those that God did not create me to carry. Mostly of my own choice but none the less realizing it and releasing it is the greates gift.
