Two More Walked Away Today

She’s a high school student and her heart has been ripped apart

and now she is looking for a restart

 

But all people do at church is make fun

so she’s on the run

 

He’s a college student his life was filled with drinking, cussing, and lust

and now church people just look at him in disgust

 

He has been saved and set free

but all the church talks about is who he use to be

 

She stand now looking at the steeple

wondering what is wrong with church people

 

It’s like everything they say is in vain

and all they do is cause pain

 

she takes a seat

feeling the weight of defeat

 

she sets there as everyone walks by

and all she think about is how she wants to die

 

He slips in just before service begins

and everyone is still talking about his past sin

 

it’s already been a year

and he left his friends to be here

 

but no one even cares

and this burden he can no longer bare

 

He can’t take it anymore 

so he gets up and walks out the door

 

He never returns

but the church wasn’t concerned 

 

She walks out with tears streaming down her face

all she wanted was to feel someone’s loving embrace

 

She killed herself that day

but the church still had nothing to say

 

so many never come back 

because all they feel is attacked

Love is what everyone is looking for

but they can’t even find it in church anymore
