My whole life I’ve been judged

Talked down to for expressing my opinions

Always told what to do

So I stopped speaking my mind

I stopped doing

For the fear of being judged

And all I’ve ever wanted

Was for someone to want to make me a

Better person

Without judging me

And I’ve searched and I’ve searched

Slowly losing hope for someone to comfort me

Someone to show me what’s right and what’s wrong

Just Someone to be there for me

And as my search dwindled to nothingness

I finally found what I was looking for

You’ve been there for me

Through everything

Even when I failed to be grateful

My Creator

The All-Forgiving and All-Knowing

Thank you, My Lord
