  At the end of my rope

To the end of my rope
To the end of my line
Wondering if I am going to live or die
Praying for God to come thru
To open my eyes and again see the light

All these troubles blocking the way
Stones trying so hard to climb
The hand holds being right out my grasp
Teasing me with its solutions

Locked in a box
Lock and key in eyesight
Trying to hide from the problems
Their laughing at me
Making me lose focus on the prize

Nowhere to run
Stuck in a rut
Spinning rubber and mud
Wishing, Hoping, Praying continuously throughout the day
God come save me from this mess
Mind in pieces
Trying to become a better woman
For my child
For my soul

But Iím at the end of my rope
