Falling and Failing

Lord, will you catch me

when I fall in failure again?



Why can’t I understand

that I can’t change the past,

only influence the future?



I’m glued to the present

although my feet try

to become unstuck to fate.



These mistakes I’ve made

will never escape me

but I can overcome them

instead of letting them

consume me.



But if I turn back,

I’ll just repeat them.



So I look forward and hope

that you will find me

in my latest breakdown

and fix me.
