too hurt, too busy – v2

I can understand
why they leave the churches
I left for similar reasons
back in my youth
hypocrites, sinners
imposters in charge
too many in power
for earthy desires
too hurt, too busy
to enter, to worship
to forgive one another
too many hurting
wandering in the world
the churches empty
not admitting their brokenness
needing one another
offering love
