Amen

They said
there goes the strongest woman
this town has ever seen,
she could take on the world,
she can handle anything
No one knew
I prayed every night
just to make it through
one more day, one more week,
Dear Lord, just let me sleep
I wish I’d never seen
the plans you had for me,
want to lay down my knife,
said I’d lay down my life,
now I just want to die,
have someone else in
my corner this time,
chained to my pen
with a broken heart
that won’t mend,
time won’t erase
all the places I’ve been
and I just want to go
home to you tonight,

Amen.
