A Wasted Day

I try and I try, I really try,
I plan, I scheme, I even fight,
I do, I hope for I am right,
But yet, I cannot.

I try again I do not quit,
I go and throw quite a fit,
I get angry, I do not sit,
But yet, I cannot.

Now I am mad so very mad,
I have failed and I am sad,
Why oh why a day gone bad,
But yet, I cannot.

Now I stop to think, to ponder,
A wasted day in which I flounder,
Forgetting to pray, trust and wait,
For without God, I cannot.
