Blind me so I can follow the sound of your voice. Open my eyes wider and muffle the outside noise. Quiet me so I can see the future of your choice.

Still this storm that rages at the footsteps of my heart. I want to focus and be among the stars. I no longer exist for my self glory. Move through me freely. See, I know now, this life of mine is both of our stories.

As you carry me I can feel you. Like a gentle wind you lift me up from my despair. Clear my mind so I can breathe. Without taking a breath you give me a breath of fresh air.

Like a craving that gnaws from the inside. I'm consistently provided with a sustenance that is sustainable. More than enough. Still I want more. Some times it seems not manageable and gets so rough but I'm sure. You have a plan that will cast all shadows aside

In the distance I can hear the thunder/ lightings roar. I brace and prepare for a battlefield in some distant war. You calm me and compel me to push forward. You guide my actions. Though my hands are stained you give me satisfaction.

A hope & purpose to fight everyday!
