Ivory Connection…

image

Stairway from heaven,
Upon ivory keys.
Delivering healing notes,
To a world in need.

Awaiting human touch,
A heavenly connection.
Access to God’s presence,
And His melodious perfection.

Stairway to heaven,
Upon ivory keys.
A fluid stream where spirit dances,
And soul receives.

Enveloped by Gods love in harmony,
With the hurting under oppression.
A concerto with angelic orchestra,
Creating sound which defies comprehension…

A New Past…

image

I’ve said goodbye to yesterday,
Yet it diligently strives to resurface.
The past is behind me, far away,
This is an unwelcome resurgence.

I’ve learned much of who I am in God.
There’s much to learn still today.
Despite how I once was,
God’s not leaving me that way.

No matter how hard the enemy tries,
To convince me I am still “she”.
To whisper false beliefs to my soul,
I’ve come to know differently.

My past is a tool I can use,
To show the hurting they’re not alone.
I can finally say I’m grateful,
For the painful place God’s brought me from.

I remember when…

image

I remember when,
I was trying to stop dying.
I remember when,
I could not stop the crying.
I remember when,
I thought I’d never quit hurting.
I remember when,
I lost my shield for life’s sting.
I remember when,
Hope was strange and fleeting.
I remember when,
Nothing stopped the bleeding.

It pains me to see people brand new in sobriety,
Emotions twisted and unsettling.
Fear the dominant reality,
Pain unrelenting.

Trying to grasp onto some semblance of sanity,
Hearing muffled voices, not clear on what they’re saying.
Told to hold on and just not pick up today,
Fighting the constant pull to flee, reluctantly staying.

Believing I’d never be happy again,
Saturated in a self pity that despised the smiling.
Wondering how I’d ever Learn to live,
Without something to numb what I was feeling…

I saw me today.
Back in January of last year.
And I wanted to put her in my pocket,
To wipe her abundant tears.
I didn’t buy fully the things people said back then,
Their promises were pipe dreams to me.
I struggled each second for new breath,
Tormented by a darkness all consuming.

But,
The promises proved not to be lies,
If only she too can believe.
My heart still hurts for her,
I pray God can work through me…

Hurting…

image

Drowning in your tears.
Unable to stop their flow.
Wanting to let go…

The Light Inside…

Image

There is a light inside you now
Waiting to be set free
A light blinding and powerful
And there’s a world who needs to see

Hope, in seemingly hopeless times
A promise of good tomorrows, today
Light which keeps you standing
As all else slips away 

Your warmth can comfort
It can soothe the broken hearted
And you can ignite others
Bringing light to souls once darkened

The forgotten beauty
That shadows have blotted out
Is made known again by your light and love
Expressions of kindness remove doubt

There is a light inside you now
Waiting to be set free
Let it light the way for the hurting
Inspiring connected unity
