Like a Lamb

Like a Lamb

I am broken; I explode from my skin

Like a lamb led to slaughter for my sin

Now I kneel at your feet and let go

Of myself and my pride, in sorrow

I scream as to peel off my skin

For the shame from the pain that I am in

I cannot bear such a loss day by day

Nor to weep as I do so you will stay

Let me beg for the touch of your hand

So to soothe every scar that I can

This balm is my life or my death

One kiss will restore this fool’s breath

Believe me this time when I say

That I will do anything to allay

My suffering
