As a whirlpool spins
Like a cesspool sins
I have sinned, pass through my face
Memories of each in my heart race
If I had taken time to think each thought,
then those fights I fought,
better fights I would have sought and my life would amount to better than nought.
Like the rain drop falls
As the windstorm hauls
The trees, my heart rages in pain
Now I have lived in glory so vain
If I had waited patiently for true love’s kiss
and not hurried along into not being Miss,
about now I would have found this bliss
and not be living in this crisis.
Give me agony
Let joy flee and depart in disharmony
Give me pain
Let happiness find residence in another terrain
Away with peace
Let me weep and tear out my heart piece by piece
For darkness has possessed my soul
And a lack of light my whole
Where shall I find solace?
Am I to end in utter disgrace?
Death, I plead thee, come give me rest.
The place of Sheol, into your hands my soul I invest.
Remember me O my God, for Good!
