It is Only When I'm Left Alone

(Job 13:15)


Like the virus in my veins
A broken window pane
Jaws are locked into place
Mingled cup thrown in my face


I live in a house of clay
Violated and dismayed
I don't want to be a dream
In somebody else's sleep


It is only when I'm left alone
That I pervert what is sown
Blood and skin beneath my nails
Reflects the emptiness of hell


Then I squirm in my bed
Pull the sheets around my head
Soaking wet in a pool of sweat
Pray for me, I'm not dead


Take me out with the garbage
And don't you compromise
'Cause that's all we really are
Until we confess the lie


Overview (None of us is worthy through our own works and good merits to approach God. We must recognize that Jesus represents us before God as our advocate with the Father. When we feel hopeless we should draw on the strength of Christ in us and surround ourselves with other Christians who will be there to support us. Alone we are weak but together we are made strong.)
