Shame Unjustified


This shame you make me feel
For telling the truth
For standing up for myself
Is shame unjustified.

This guilt you plant in me
For apologizing
For being too honest
Is guilt unjustified.

But I still feel it!
It's still planted in me!
I've already apologized,
And you still hate me.
Is hate unjustified.

The Lord has forgiven me,
This I know;
And this shame I feel
Is shame unjustified.
