If anyone would have a better name for this one I would appreciate all comments...

Once there were too many lies
Now I've opened up my eyes.

A lie I can tell no more
For it's truth that lays at Heavens door.

Now this is where I want to be
To tell the truth, it's set me free.

I am sorry for the things I've done
But now I see the truth must come.

It hurts and scars me way down deep
To see you hurt, but the truth I must keep.

The truth should of been there
From the very start.
But lying has done nothing
But to tear us apart.

I want to make things better
And to try to make them right...
I must be true and honest, in God's loving sight!

For I have turned my life around
And tried to make it better.
I found the hope that I did need
Right here in God's letter.

So I hope that you will understand
That I am doing what is right.
Cause it is only by the grace of God
That we will win this fight!

The truth will only do it
Nothing more and nothing less.
It's been harder to speak the truth
Than lie I must confess!

For this I've endured much ridicule
I'm sure much more to come.
But I'm the one that must answer
For my actions to God's Son.

Thanks be to God!
------
This is also for my friend!

it is so nice to see there are some in this
world that are not afraid to talk about God.
i have read many of your works,and think
they are all very good.i am sure he(God)
loves them too.

Thanks so much! I haven't written in quite a while. I truely believe they are only inspired by God. They come to me, sometimes with struggle, but I have to write them down. I'm glad He can use me this way to reach out to others. That is my only wish that if it helps just one person, then I am greatful.

I wrote this for a girlfriend of mine. In reply to her son, from her point of view.
