Words fall like the rain washing over me.
Cold and cleansing…Bold and refreshing…
Sensory perceptions forming our reality
But is there another side to what we see?
How many coincidences will it take
To shake us awake from a world that is fake?
When something speaks out to you,
Deepens your thought & quickens your heart,
When your hairs stand up & it’s all you can do
To hang onto the moment & not fall apart
In those moments of joy, so awe inspiring
Confronted with beauty, so jaw dropping
They’re gone so quickly, so easily forgotten
The pain & the struggle are right where they were
Take the time to remember, even if it’s verboten
Even when things move so fast that they blur
It’s easy to give up & to give in to despair
When you’re lost in yourself & nobody’s there
To answer the door, as you knock in the rain
Say these words to yourself, despite the pain
For it only goes so deep, so don’t stop to weep
Never surrender…Never give in…
For the Kingdom of Heaven lies within
