    Prayer of a Selfish Soul

    Lord, I have been everything except what I should.
    I have fought for my own way over yours,
    And I have done nothing but fall short.
    I am here for the sole purpose
    Of requesting Your mercy once again.
    I have chased my own dreams
    And burned my own way
    Through this busted world to no avail.
    I have been a stubborn fool
    Who only cares about what he can accomplish
    And who he can impress.
