Too Tight - October 23, 2001

Too Tight
(c) October 23, 2001

Haven't touched the paper
in three weeks maybe four
thought I'd grab a pen
how the time does soar

I've been drifting places
I'd not like to be
dreaming anxious thoughts
chasing restless leaves

Living in my world
contained within my cell
begging for forgiveness
wrapped too tight for hell

Light must give me peace
shade will turn to dust
time can surely pass
in God I must trust

Fifteen months till life
pulls me from despair
walking through the gate
now is my only care

Blessed curse of remorse
fills my lonely day
sorrow plays on recall
I must kneal and pray
