Guilt By Default

My face smeared across the basement
A picture defaced
All goodness erased
In my disguise
I wait for peace to arise

Stepped on
I take a step down
Against an attack
I took a step back

My precious stones
polished for no one
Awaiting the rise
of the one they call the son

Some say I am wrong
But God knows I’ve hurt no one
I’ve loved, cared and shared
Ask for nothing from no one

Guilty they are ashamed
and make me the blame
Until proven innocent
Jesus sees all the same
