Ceaseless Surrender

Defined by the here and back again;

It’s a relief that we’re still friends.

Tease me to stay,

But release me to go:

This is our incessant to and fro;

It is our beating against the stream

That ameliorates my desires to dream.

Freedom to look around

Without the rustlings of future sounds.

Time & You

Are you master of these years?

And I been thinking what’s like when you’ve been treated wrong.

It’s never seems to grow; is everything as you want of me?

If I could blame you, and if I could choose:

I would lay down beside you, and you’d my muse.

And if I could be anything,

I would be staring back at you my darling.

Help me to realize what it must be like.

Break me and realize, what I have left inside.

Illumine Me

God, Illumine my path
as you have illuminated many.

Forgive me for who I was
And glorify me because of my surrender
to the grace you poured out through your sacrifice:

Your testament of pain;
Your suffering for the sake of others.

You, oh Mighty Lord of All,
You are unafraid.
Because you lack even the fear of self-sacrifice.
