Set Me Free

I now realize I need help
I now see that as much as I said
I was free to do anything
Truth is
I'm a prisoner
My soul is bound by chains of hell
By desires and deeds of the flesh
Yet the flesh walks freely
And does as it pleases
I found myself crying
But I could find the real reason
I was so unhappy
Daa! I had everything I wanted in life
I had the money
My dream house n car
Not to mention a good family
I'm desired
And envied by most
But why
As I zoomed into me
I saw that there was a whole
This big whole
How come its there
Cause I have everything to fill it
Its like the more I tried to fill this whole
Its the more I felt empty inside
Dear lord set me free
I'm trapped
Trapped my deeds of the flesh
Yet that very flesh of mine walks freely
I can hear my soul crying deep within me
I can feel it fainting within me
As if its grasping its last breath
But with each n every bit of strength it has
Still it fights
Cause it knows
Its for eternity
Freedom in the spirit is what I desire n need
ohh lord Hear me right this moment
