I want my own way Lord, I want my own way.
My way is easier, I don't have to trust or
Surrender. I'm allowed a wide berth.
I can create my own assuredness,
I don't have to rely on others.
I want my own way because it doesn't seem
As perilous. Faith is not required because
Control is what it is all about. I can have
What I want, when I want it, my own
Ideas safe from a hint of sacrifice.
I want my own way Lord, until I crash onto
The shores of something I am not in control of
Until I am frustrated because others won't bend
To my will. Then I can throw a tantrum to
Show I will not surrender to your way.
