Am Sorry


Am sorry that I don’t pray as I ought to
Am sorry that I doubt you sometime
Am sorry that I question you all the time
Am sorry that my prayers are all selfish
Am sorry I talk to much
Am sorry that people question my salvation
Coz then it shows am not living as you want me to
Am sorry I cannot see beyond my closed door
And that’s why I have loads of questions
Am sorry that many a times I get stuck between the altar and the door
Am sorry that I judge
Coz when I do people only know what am against and not what am for
Am sorry am slowing the gospel
With my denomination and my translation of the Bible
Am sorry that am a complainer
Am sorry I drag your people down
With my reluctance to spread your love
Am sorry I hold grudges
Yet you command me to forgive
Am sorry I hate yet you love
Am sorry that I have to sorry every time I pray
Am sorry because sometime am not even sorry
Am sorry that am sorry now
Am sorry that am ending this with ‘am sorry’

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
