PSALM

Forgive me God

Forgive me

When I cry

When I life

When I shout

Forgive me

Forgive me God

Forgive me

When I return

When I hide

Forgive me

Forgive me God

Forgive me

When I lie

When I’m lied to

Forgive me

Forgive me God

Forgive me

When I deceive

When I’m deceived

Forgive me

Forgive me God

Forgive me

When I curse

When I am cursed

Forgive me

Forgive me God

Forgive me

When I forget

Your goodness

When I forget

Your mercy

Forgive me

MATHEMATICAL

They subtract and subtracted

They added and added

Never correctly

To all the equations

They gave a value

For the crossing of the coordinates

It never came to use

Either the plus or the minus

Of the smooth times

They subtract and subtracted

They added and added

And never was the conclusion correct
