Despair makes out its call
the miseries putting you to the wall.
tears stuck in my eyes not to fall
the heart losing up so quick and tall.
the soul departing on leave
what can be worse than this eve?
O lord why have you shunned me?
your wrath has always cornered me.
why can i not make it to you
is the road to mercy closed to you?
if not you that i can ask from
who else then can i seek from?
I may still be up and breathing
my heart may still be beating.
My face may put up a smile
my faith may go the extra mile.
but my body can’t take the blows no more
for you put in your blessings no more.
so please have me get up and rise
for i am left broken in despise.
