Why?

Tell me why I should die inside for you
Tell me why I should live a life untrue

I am not evil nor should I be damned in this life
I am not evil but you would burden me with strife

He calls me to open the door and let Him in
You believe I've closed myself off with lust and sin

His invitation is loving and kind
Your accusations are hurtful and blind

I am a boy, a yearning child of God
Your hateful words upon my life have trod

Be still and listen to my fervent plea
All of God's children must be set free

God gives me life and love and salvation as my choice
You hate and judge and brutally silence my voice

No more
No more
