Father I seem to fail every test
that You’ve lately laid before me
when all I want is to do my best
but I constantly seem to fail Thee

I wish I could have done much better
for You deserve much more than this
Let me apologize to You in this letter
and try to set right what’s gone amiss

Father, You have not failed me ever
I know I only have myself to blame
and I wish that I could simply sever
with all the things that put me to shame

Once again I will seek Your pardon
for the choices I have wrongly made
much like Adam and Eve in the garden
let me not feast on that which You forbade
