“My Situation”

Oh have my mind seeks rest
Oh how my soul seeks a friend
My soul still goes without
Because of the situation I'm in
My situation caused pain, destruction and disgrace
It even caused the ones who loved me to disappear before my face
Some lasted for a winter, some through spring and fall,
But you want to know something funny, mu situation out lasted them all.
Now it’s only me and my situation, and it haunts me like a curse
Some even think my situation will outlast my life here on Earth
But God forbids, he won’t allow my situation to last that long
For God made me a real man, and my situation is not that strong
So why did they let my situation scare them, was their love even real
Or was it “out of sight” “out of mind” regardless of how one feels
But I must respect my situation.  It taught me to help myself,
It taught me to love everyone, but trust no one else.
It funny how situations occur, but even funnier how they end
I’ll never forget my situation because it showed me my “true friends”.
