I am not yet in your heart; oh hear me
Let not hatred nor rejection arise for me
Neither the door nor heart shut on me.
I am not yet in your heart; oh welcome me
Hug me again with heart, hug me
Look at me; with your smiling eyes
Let your lips sing welcomes.
I am not yet in your heart; oh understand me
My words are not like mountains
Neither its strength can fly higher like an eagle
Nor can atoms combine, until you understand me.
I am not yet in your heart; oh forgive me
I’m not the potter, I cannot change me
Poorness I did not pay to have
Forgive me to break your vow
That my heart needs you.
I’m not yet in your heart; oh be gentle with me
Please do be gentle, stop hissing at me
Speaking the words of arrows, my heart will collapse
In me, be gentle, I kneel, be gentle
Let not me kneel, my empty kneel
Please be gentle with how I feel
Before you judge like God.
