“My life is not my own,
You have held it from the start.
And every time I claimed a piece,
It only broke Your heart.
Those times when I chose beauty,
It rained for weeks on end.
But little did I realize,
You were crying for me then.
And when I needed more, Dear God,
Satisfaction never took,
The heavy clouds of rain again,
You could not bear to look.”
--Chip Bracken
