For Those Who Hurt On Fathers Day

 

This Father’s day I ask you to listen to what I have to say

 

I ask you not to put this off for even one more day

 

I know your hearts been broken, crush and tossed away

 

Hardened for your own protection, lost with so many words to say

 

I know you that you are hurting, I know you feel alone

 

Abandon and abused buy the one you should call your own

 

While others sing their Fathers praise, you cry oh don’t they know?

 

I can`t relate to them at all, I`m living in a hole

 

And bitterness and resentment are eating at my soul

 

Snuffing out any hope at all of a life that`s truly whole

 

You`ve been waiting for an apology or something to hold on

 

An explanation a ray of hope to show that that they`ve done wrong

 

But nothing comes you sit alone within your darkened room

 

Brooding over someone who brought you fear, mistrust and gloom

 

You`ve given control of your life to someone you despise

 

Fear and heart break, bitterness and pain apart of all the lies

 

I know that you are hurting, I know, I know, I know

 

But you can get your freedom back just by letting go

 

The past is far behind you, the future lay ahead

 

Come take my hand and I`ll help you from this hell you truly dread

 

Freedom comes through forgiveness and with forgiveness there comes peace

 

Asking for forgiveness will set your mind at ease

 

Forgiving those who hurt us and forgiving our own selves

 

Is the only way you’ll break out of this eternal hell

 

I know it’s hard to come to grips with all you’ve been put through

 

But some ones waiting to be free and that someone is you

 

Pray: “Jesus please help me, free me from this guilt and shame,

 

Help me to forgive the one I hate, the one who is to blame

 

Help me to forgive myself, and live a life that’s free,

 

And realize it not my fault, I’m not the one guilty
