I am starting to think ‘human’ means ‘faulty’ in some medieval language
Because every time we sin
We go to the Father
“Forgive Me Father ,I am only human”
That’s what we always say
As if that’s enough justification for our imperfection
I have made a lotsa mistakes,
Only thing is I don’t look back on it.
I’m ready for change ,I wanna grow
So I take the mess
And I act on it.
Just like how the bacteria takes dead bodies and then acts on it
To release nutrients for plants growth.
Things got changed especially since I got a kid now,
She look up to me, so I know I gotta make the moves and never slack on it.
And I got to look out for her
Clean up the streets that I grew up on
So she can have a better place to play.
Trying to level the odds that I gotta beat
So she don’t ever have to go through what I did.
I may make some mistakes
But it is what it is
I ain’t going to put it on some demons inside me
Or an alter ego
It was me,
And I did it to protect my daughter
Judge me if you want to
But I didn’t have an option
My hand was forced
So what’s it going to be
Are you going to
Forgive Me ,Father?
