Psalm 6:7

Wrenching sobs 
Suffocating sadness 
Unfulfilled expectations

Searching, looking
Seeking, hoping
Crying for acceptance

Lord, you remind me
I need to reach out to my world
And love as only YOU can love

I see her sitting in a corner
Of a dim and smokey room
Her lipstick illuminated by the glow of her cigarette

Behind her makeup and tight blouse
She holds her head up with pride
But her eyes give away the fear of how she feels inside

What will they think of me 
If they see who I really am
All I want is for them to accept me as their friend

She’s ..
Looking for acceptance
In a heartless world
Searching for admission
To the ones who are loved
Hoping for a friend who will love the one inside
But willing to pay the cost whatever the price

I watch him talking and joking
In the middle of a crowded room
He has a comeback for everything to make everyone laugh

He is the favorite at all the parties
His reputation is well known
But deep down inside he’s only afraid of being alone

What will they think of me 
If they see who I really am
All I want is for them to accept me as their friend

He’s ..
Looking for acceptance
In a heartless world
Searching for admission
To the ones who are loved
Hoping for a friend who will love the one inside
But willing to pay the cost whatever the price

Who made the rules of who we should be
How we should act and what we should say
We need to accept without conditions or terms
And love each other as only He can love

We are all…
Looking for acceptance
In a heartless world
Searching for admission
To the ones who are loved
Hoping for a friend who will love the one inside
But willing to pay the cost whatever the price

Reach out to your sister and stand by her side
Reach out to your brother and give up your pride
Reach out to your world and love as He loves
Reach out to your world and love as He loves
