    Funny how memories can hurt so bad
    But feel so good
    in my moments of depression I held
    On cause I knew if you could make It
    surely I could and I would
    End my life right now but I’m scared
    I wont see you again caught up in
    The grasp of the devil trying to
    Rid my life of sin
    and now I stand
    Here with my back against the wall
    And tears in my eyes searching for
    God and trying to find a piece of mind
    don’t get me wrong I always have
    Believed in an afterlife but for a while
    I turned away from god cause I just
    Had to get right
    U see I found myself praying to god
    For forgiveness for things I’d done
    That I knew I would just turn around
    And do again I’m trying to keep my faith
    So I sit here typing hoping the answer
    Comes from within

    repentance comes
    with the admission of sin
    though we may be tempted again
    its factored into the cost
    so when transgressions consume
    please forgive us for being lost
    amen...

    i can dig it

    One,
    Derrick Jay

    been there...
    the answer is and remains
    with God...
    my father always told me
    no matter what you're doing in your life
    never stop praying...
    God always wants to hear from you...
    He really does.
