This is a rewrite/finished from the last poem Torn I posted.

In my mind I’m all confused
I feel I’m judged I’m being perused
I stand alone in a crowd
In their presence I am cowed
Oh how my heart is hard
I stand alone like I’m on guard
I often don’t know what to say
I want to turn and run away
But I want to run and hide
This leaves me without a guide
I want to ask what’s wrong with me
Do I have a flaw you see
I petition God I ask and pray
Help me Spirit with what words to say
I know my heart belongs to You
But I’m torn and don’t know what to do
I do not wonder where I belong
Is there something inside me wrong
Oh Lord please hear my prayer
Help me to peel back the layers
Oh Lord hear my cry
On Your Word I do rely
Oh Lord this I pray
In You Presence I want to stay
