mercy

instead of giving you
everything
oh, God
i have given
everything
to another being
corrupt
bankrupt
broken
instead of giving you
everything
oh, God
i have given everything
to another flesh
twisted
deceived
    your mercy oh, God
just like my pockets
so too,
with my soul
i have nothing saved
nothing to show
instead of giving you
everything
oh, God
i have given everything
to another man
blessed
am i not
and not twice
oh, God
not three times
but more than the fingers on my hand
have i asked for your mercy
evil
evil
little body of mine
evil evil heart and mind
i have not given you everything
oh, God
instead i have sowed it into thin air
and watched it disappear
and how could i ask
for your mercy
oh, God
