from days gone past


by Allison McCulloch
 
No one's here
And I fear
All I've done wrong
That I don't belong
That I'm outside the lines
Past the point of no return
That there's nothing more to learn
Because I'm Stubborn
Because I'm Frail and Worn and Tired
And all that was required was what I didn't give
Sometimes all that is required is the hardest to give
No one's listening
All I'm missing
Is some empathy
Really I'm feeling empty
	Like I'm a vessel
	Waiting to be filled by the master
	Soon a tear then a stream starts flowing faster
	But I'm Stubborn
	But I'm Frail and Worn and Tired
	And all that was required was what I didn't give
	Sometimes all that is required is the hardest to give
	And I want to live
	And I want to die
	And I want to deny My shortcomings
	Staring Me in the eye
	My shortcomings….
I'm so unworthy
But I'm so thirsty
If you can see me
Then please free me
	I'm so Stubborn
	I'm so Frail and Worn and Tired
	And all that was required was what I won't give
	Sometimes all that is required is the hardest to give
Can you tear me
From my selfishness
Then can you spare me
From falling away
Can you heal me
Then can you seal me
Then can you feel me
And call me your child

And when I don't understand
And when I can't see your Hand
Remind me of your faithfullness from days gone past
Remind me of your faithfullness from days gone past
