My heart is hardened
Peace I cannot find
Iíve made a mess of things
with so much on my mind.
How does one know
what is the right thing to do?
I made a choice, I thought was right
When I chose to be with you.
Iím certainly not perfect
maybe not even an average man
but I try do whatís right
and do my best when I can.
I tried so hard
to make things right
but it wasnít enough
to just be in sight.
I still believe
I put my family first
the joy they bring me
quenches my thirst.
I want to be a good dad
husband and friend
if I am too late
then where do I begin?
Starting over is not easy
I donít think Iím ready to try
itís hard to hold back
my feelings of wanting to cry.
Iíve gone about this all wrong
trying to do it own my own
I should have continued asking for help
for God has always known.
He has a plan for me
but I never continued to ask
if only I had prayed more
I could have handled this task.
I donít know what is next
thankfully itís not too late to pray
with my children and God above
I will be here one more day.
