Mount up with eagles wings

Mount up with eagles wings my friend..
To the sky let you they send..
Mount up with eagles wing my friend..
High above..up in the skies...
 
From way up there the problems show..
Their true strength..and their true size..
Mount up with wings of eagles my friend..
To comfort fly with speed...
 
Remember you are not alone..
Find strength in what God decrees.
For He will keep fast hold of you..
And hear your painful pleas...
 
Mount up with wings like eagles my friend..
And never forget this truth..
That we who love you fly by your side
For loves strength lives in eternal youth..
 
Mount up with wings of eagles my friend..
To the sky let you they send..
Find peace in the love of God..
And in the hearts of your friends...
 
Soar your way to Gods true grace...
And never lose flight again...

Not for me

I am being swallowed whole by this.
Feel my world shrinking by the minute.
I look out through the bars behind my eyes,
wondering if anyone can see the cage I'm stuck in?
Fear and uncertainty are wearing me down again.
Rage and despair control me again and I've got
Nowhere to go.
Who cares?
There is no relief for this constant ache.
Overwhelmed by miniscule decisions.
I lean on you crushed to pieces.
All of these years of introspection later--
there isn't any hope and there aren't any dreams.
Still I slog on gritting my teeth every day.
I promised-
and I will.
There is no purpose to my life.
There is no divinity or sacredness.
No difference one day to the next.
My soul tied up in barbed wire I pretend I don't .
So I can present the impossible me to the world.
Whole and complete and at peace with myself.
It's not possible.
It's not for me.

Healing under a canopy

Stroll through the shaded wood I must;
Liniment for a marred soul.
In love with the seclusion it offers;
I yearn for the peace it brings.
Amble about in nature's song
I stroll along to such sounds:
Singing birds, dinky feet on Forest's floor, water-a-trickling.
Healing from a pain so deep
It threatens to crush my voice.
I rebel, fight back, scream, kick, cry.
I will not allow this.
You cannot have my soul.
My past will not destroy me!
Your 'control' is merely an illusion.
I am no longer a child.
For I see the light.
It's above me,
Filtering through the leaves.
It streaks my face with gold.
I feel its warmth on my skin.
This is the color of confidence.
I give myself the permission.
I can heal.
No one else can have
Me.
I smile.
I laugh.
I cry.
I'm filled with joy.
I am at peace.
Up ahead, I see a bridge.
I will cross it.
I will burn it down.

Tears for Rachel

she was such a solemn little girl..
she has learned what it is to smile
she has seen a butterfly and wondered at its beauty
she has never known laughter
joy is something that only comes through the extras
she knows they have it
she can sense it in them
she has never know it
she has known Him
He gave her refuge
she hides in the dark
the only face we can see is Lucy
we have drawn her face here because
she looks so much like Rachel
Lucy is five
Rachel is two
she is the little one
the original
the one who made us
the one we cry for.

Chasing me

Chasing me, all my life.
Running from its grasp.
It will devour me when it catches up.
Hopefully quickly.
Probably slowly and painfully.
It works its way up behind you,
surprises you,
and one day you realize that it has you.
Held tightly in its grasp.
We always run,
knowing it will catch us.
And we always try to hide,
knowing it will find us.
None of us can escape.
its cold, horrid clutches.
Some don't mind,
it comes to them with the face of an angel.
Others see the demon for what it is.
Those are the runners, the hiders.
Some run for a long time, like me.
Others just give up and let go,
like I never will.
I'll run and fight and hide,
knowing eventually I'll lose.
I'll run anyway.

A chance to love

I promised myself this time won't be the same,
I was going to keep these feelings inside and tame,
keep a cap on this passion and flame,
but I get shivers just hearing your name.
 
Now I'm with you and it feels so right.
I haven't lost all control yet; not quite,
but its a daily struggle and difficult fight,
and I want to be with you tonight.
 
I hear your voice on the phone,
and your every inflection and tone
reminds me that I'm no longer alone,
reminds me opposition has flown.
 
With your kisses fiery and long,
I realize these feelings are so strong.
"I just want someone to love"; perfect lyrics to a song,
to show me I started out terribly wrong.
 
I want to thank the gods of love
for sending a lesson as if on the wings of a dove,
a lesson I had to be reminded of,
you should never deny yourself a chance to love.

Lost little lamb

Tears forming in her eyes,
that soon run down her face.
Lord I pray you help her threw,
the pain she can't escape.
This lost little lamb,
that needs to find her way.
Give her the strength,
she seems to have lost today.
Pain comes running to her,
she's so broken inside.
With everything in her,
she tries to hide.
Her head is down,
she's staring at her feet.
In her mind,
she has chosen defeat.
Inside she aches,
with every breathe.
What will be her future,
she's scared to death

Scarlet mistress

can I just die
you don't even have to cry
no mess just death
take back your breath
I hate the living
I'm going to start digging
I can no longer pretend
I want the pain end
it hurts inside
welcome home your bride
why keep us waiting
the guest are fading
soon we won't have a witness
I'll be your scarlet mistress
abandoned at the alter
you left me in the water
the miracle didn't walk by
so I'm asking you why
he got his silver
and I'm stuck in a river
