Torn Curtain

I don’t want this

I never have

Father, I have lived my whole life for this

Please, take this moment away

Show me another way

Any other way

Let them kill their lambs

Let them go on thinking that they can provide a perfect sacrifice

Don’t let it be me

Don’t let them separate us

Father!

Father why?

Don’t you love me?

You still love them more

Take your damn lambs

I don’t want them

I’m done with this life

I’m through

  1. Not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
