Watcher of Men
Why did I not die at birth? Expire as I came from the womb? Why were there knees to receive me? Or breasts to feed me? Why was I not like babies Who never saw the light? Who lie with kings and counsellors Who rebuild ruins for themselves And where rest Those whose strength is spent Where small and great are alike And the slave is free of his master Oh watcher of men Do you have eyes of flesh? Is your vision like man? Are your years the years of man? U know that I'm not guilty And that none can deliver from your hand. Also u know that u have deeply wronged me oh And u have fenced me in You made it so nobody knows me And I'm an outsider to them When I accused you, you wouldn't speak I said you tore up my hope like a tree But I spoke without understanding Of things beyond me which I did not know And now I've heard you with my ears And I've seen you with my eyes Therefore I recant and relent Being but dust and ashes
