Sometimes I question
Why life is unfair
Sometimes I wonder
Is God ever there?

I sit alone thinking
Why He made me who I am
I stand alone feeling
Like I could be a better man

My mind races
And my heart beats faster
My life is gone
Maybe it was never there

God is against
So many things
Does that mean
He is against me?

I feel the sorrow creep
Right into my soul
Why is it there?
I have no control

Today I dread
Tomorrow I weep
Yesterday I screamed
What will I ever be?

Gay or no, we are all the same
God loves us all
But I still wonder
Why do I fall?

The sermons say
That all sins are forgiven
Sometimes that is true
Never, as I may, feel good within

An unspeakable sin
Then why is it there
So deeply within

The arms of a Mother
Where are they now
When I need them
I simply do not know how

God, will I be forsaken
For the things that I feel
My love for men
Will never a peal

I hear the strings break
The threads come undone
My delicate little soul
Is once was there

Falling down near
The water’s edge
Falling down over
My only God’s head
