This one is another very personal to me.  Critique and enjoy!

Twenty-One
Sometimes I don’t think I qualify
For twenty-one
Weighed down by the times I have to try
I’ve never won
With frayed ends and too much weight, I sigh
Doubt I could fight
For the Holy One

Twenty-one years, not gettin’ any younger
Twenty-one times I could have been stronger
And all the tears I cry at my failure
And all the prayers my cries to be more pure
Over all twenty-one

Sometimes paths cross, confusion ahead
I come undone
Sometimes I’m spun around my own head
I come undone
God, I need trust, not give up instead
Trust in your plan
You’re the Holy One

Every time I think that I have failed
Every time I’ve fallen and flailed
I can stand right back up and brush off my soul
I’ll be thinking on You, for You made me whole
Overhaul twenty-one

Set by step, walked over twenty one years
Truth by Truth, You are allaying my fears
Inch by inch, and gaining strength as I grew
Piece by piece, I will become like You

Twenty-one years, not gettin’ any younger
Twenty-one times I’ll try to be stronger
And all the songs I’ll sing as on I journey
And all the prayers, to trust until the heav’nly

When it’s all been said and done
I’ll go home. Good-bye, twenty-one

Psalm 119:11
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
