I found the face of God, in the eyes of my brother
He was dying from the pain a broken promise laid
I found the truth of God in the words of a preacher
He’d tell me how to live a life he couldn’t lead
Oh my God, why have you forsaken me, left me to find my way home?
Must we fight over these discrepancies only to find I’m alone?
I tried to be all you want me to be, never was one to belong
Can I find a way
To see your face
Or am I just too late?
I found the grace of God in the arms of my mother
She’d cry herself to sleep, and always had to leave
I found the fear of God, in the arms of my father
He was angry like a drunk, and would hit me ‘til I’d bleed
And I found the love of God, between the legs of a woman
She gave me all I need, and helped me to believe
That this is but a joke no consequence in me
And if god is a god of grace why does he leave me be?
