“Translation”

in a whisper
you’d know my life
and respond

but do we
really know
what to say

what to hear

there’re times
when things seem
so wrong
then I think
did I hear Him?

and sometimes fear
to listen again
in case I hear wrong

have you ever
told God
you won’t listen?

i have
not really won’t
but can’t

and in those moments
God’s listening
waiting to answer

“Mirage”

how does darkness
make death
so appealing

a young girl cutting
a woman aborting
a man escaping
reality

there’s a veil
set in place
with a vision
of paradise
that’s decorated
until chains
set in place

locked in silence
held in isolation
surrounded in love
but on an island

not being able
to swim
to safety

stranded
in the dark
but surrounded
by Light

having to choose
to be free
having regret
looming
to take hold

so many
make the choice
to regret
so many
make the choice
to be freedom

be available
to listen
be coming
in love
be willing
to sacrifice
your opinion

darkness
is an illusion
that’s stepped into

help someone
step into
the Light
