Truth (2)

You make me sick!  You pester me

right here in my dominion.

Don't contradict what I have said!

I've rights to my opinion!


Get out of here!  You're in my way!

I stumble over you!

The 'ends' will justify my 'means'.

I have great things to do.


I know that only I'm correct.

So hear me!  I protest!

My education proves me right.

I really know what's best.


I argue with you all the time!

You never care a wit!

You never, ever compromise.

You never bend a bit.


I fight you and abhor you too!

You never reassess -

your stubborn, hard validity.

Indignant righteousness!


You speak, but then don't listen and

ignore my arguments.

The silence really angers me.

I'm not at all content.


Your stubborn facts confuse me so.

You make me very mad.

But oh, my friends support me so.

Deception's not so bad.


My mind was made up long ago.

You can't get hold of me.

I'm all wrapped up in my belief

I chase religiously.


Rock solid was your steadfastness.

I thought you were a joke~!

...but wish I'd paid attention to

my conscience when you spoke.


You made me feel so guilty that

I blamed it all on you.

Now I'm alone and so depressed.

Deceptions were untrue.


Ignore you?  I can't any more.

All lies now seem so strange.

As God in all His glory there,

you'll never, ever change.


You've opened up my weary eyes.

Once blind, I now can see!

Thank God you've now accepted me -

for you have set me free!
