"Outside Providence"

by Jeph Johnson


I hate being tempted
     by sins I can't commit
And I hate committing sins
    without having intent
Just when I thought
     I'd calmed my courage down
The animated
                  of life
               jumped back around
He sent to me
     one day
                    a smiling brown-eyed girl
          from some god
          unconcerned with my world
I cherished the time
     we spent together
                    though lasting
          just one night
Unlike my green-eyed girl
     who had made
                    three years
          all right
Oh I wish I'd have died
     when I was in her arms
There was a
     for me then
.....and that's where I'd have gone
