My Hero

God (Inspired by)

When will I learn my lesson?


When will I look to my Hero

for the love these zeroes

cannot provide.


Will I ever pick up

the pieces of my broken heart?


Will I ever let him

make me whole?


When will I remember

He loved me

before they did,

more than they did.


He made me

from the ground up

and the inside out.


He’s wiped my tears

and healed my soul

just by His love.


He gave his life for me,

stretched out wide

on splintered limbs.
