Analysis of Cross

I found myself
In a church
Nealing at the cross
Wondering why
DId Jesus die
On the old cross
For me
So i can be free
This old cowboy
That never been free
I was riding my old horse
That didn't know
What to do
But, blue is the one
Who came up to this old church
I asked blue
What are you going
You told horse
So i walked in the church,
And sat down
And a young man
Came up to me,
And said do you
The man they called Jesus
I said no i don't
He said Jesus gave up his life
To save people like me
I said cowboy liked me
He said yes
Cowboy like you
I said ok
So how can i make it up
To him
He said you just did
I said what
He said let me show
You something
So we walked over to the
And i looked at the cross
I saw the man
I was talking to
It was him
Jesus i cried
I am saved
Thank you
