Let Me Go

Roger Anthony Whiting


This scorcher addresses the issue of how much is too much and was it all worth it in the end?


Let Me Go


From ashes they came on the morning wind

Disciples of mammon, no conscious of sin


Laying upon the treasures of earth

This is the cry that brings forth mirth


Caught in a grasp they can’t shake free

Relinquish the soul of humanity


Now enter the realm of the fabled prince

That in which loyalty is easily convinced


Let me go

Let me go


Storm a new land take all at will

Destiny proclaimed and the right to use it


Presence alone signals virtue no more

Wealth or greed, the same at the core


Inherit the earth as the kingdom of man

This is choice and the right to use it


This mantra called upon to serve thy need

Oh Father in Heaven please pull back on me


Let me go

Let me go


A penitent man down on m knees

Father in heaven is it too late to plead?


Riches, desire, were my master

As life expires did it all really matter?
