Their Pain

Their Pain

By Meredith Mcghin

I can only imagine
What it’s like to sacrifice
How it feels to do without
What it takes to pay the price
To offer all I have
Unto others with a need
I can only imagine
For myself, I live in greed

I can only imagine
What it’s like to be alone
How it feels to be rejected
How to get by on my own
To never share a secret
To feel empty deep inside
I can only imagine
For myself, I live in pride

I can only imagine
What it’s like to be abused
How it feels to lie awake
Feeling angry, tired and bruised
To have no friend to turn to
Filled with rage I can’t release
I can only imagine
For myself, I live in peace

I can only imagine
What it’s like to know such pain
How it feels to wake each morning
With a past I can’t explain
To live a constant nightmare
That no else can parallel
I can only imagine
But for them, they live in Hell
