in Your direction…

I kept it to myself
I was bruised and crushed to the ground
I was bleeding inside

Someone
scarred my heart
but it will mend

Someone
battered my state of mind
but my judgment will still be morally right

Though the pain has remained unseen
I still have an open vein
writhing in perennial pain

Other people speak ill of me
Releasing dirty names on me
I turned my back pretending no one was there

I looked up to the sky
And held my head in Your direction
saying, “Forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.”
