Hope, once held for me, now lost

Paralyzed by their words of unhappiness

Staring down from their high place in my heart

I feel small and unworthy


Requests of forgiveness are heard and ignored

What was expected was not accomplished

And so I fall ungracefully

In the mind of those who I seek to please

Like the beautiful Angel who fell to sin


Falter I must not in my motivation

Though burdens will be tossed upon my shoulders

My steps shall not give in to the weight

I shall not disappoint again
