Inspired by the song.
She glanced up to the sky
and could not understand why
the world was so endless and yet so
Because against the blue
the only inhabitants were
the lonely sun and moon.
How can one define a day? By the light the Lord gave?
She knew it was time to move
to pull her heart away
from what would never happen,
what would never stay.
So when the dawn broke
and her spirit spoke
she knew it was time again
to change to change
same same but different.
To fight in the workforce
to smile for her false friends
to laugh when the moment was “right”
to always choke back her fright.
To live for the money or the grade,
for the pleasure of the praise.
An endless but empty existence.
Then as the sky turned no longer blue
brooding into a livid gray
when she could not take weathered frays
of the life she knew,
when the fame was not worth the pain
when the failures found no answers
the heavens opened with rain, rain
and she saw she needed a final change.
The relief had come
a perfect being now undone
before her eyes, before her wrongs.
When the darkest dark covered her soul
her heart and mind losing control
the light splintered her fallen past
and she was free, free at last.
The sky was full full of color
of clouds of sun of moon of life of Him
it was endless but not empty
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
