I Have Never Lived Yet
I have never lived yet, there's no use pretending,
I have never lived yet, my life close to ending,
From the first hour of my birth, I've had a low sense of worth,
The truest words of my song, could they have always been wrong?
I have never lived yet, I have never lived yet.
I have never loved yet, there's no one to hold me,
I have never loved yet, my kisses were too free,
From the time of first dating, I saw no need for waiting,
To escape from my home's strife, stained my soul to be a wife
I have never loved yet, I have never loved yet.
I've never been a child, I know that for damn sure,
I've never been a child, no past dreams of nurture,
A huge helping of drama, and a plate full of trauma,
Life bereft of Your blessing, THAT dear God I'm confessing,
I've never been a child, I've never been a child.
But now I'm a poet, my passions at last free,
But now I'm a poet, fount of my family,
To God's blessings I came home and promise no more to roam,
Today Lord, if I have pride, it's because You’re by my side,
Loving just the I AM, and now yours Lord I am.
