Right From The Beginning

Right From The Beginning

there was a vocation to promote the population
as a young child I would dream
about far off places with kings and queens
a challenge to be free was a quest for time
living on the edge and it's going to my head
sitting up at night all alone in bed
following the rainbow to the sky
I see a crystal clear vision of you pass me by
although those many years had passed still have a reason to grasp
the true rich music that plays on
solace is the name of the song
to be a beacon of light to a hurting world in need of love
right from the beginning I could see
real life to that of what is fantasy
what would I be willing in which to achieve
a decorated vase out on the patio
points to the places where I need to go
the closing in on a new Summers day
pay ample time to bow the knee to pray
others may insist it ought not be that way
it starts from deep within
only to obey the masters plan
you are the vine and he is the branch
love to get you through it if you just give him a chance
hero's come a dime a dozen some falling from the Elm right into the oven
suffering comes to test your faith
learn from your mistakes & smile
cause you knew all the great while
right from the beginning is the true source that's always winning
