vision

Ideas upon the horizon
Haze over my eyes
The lake was now much too far to swim
Lonely rain enlarged it
Winds carelessly disturbed it
And we felt solitude catching each our breaths
But hidden destinations
Cannot preempt our trusting
For the guide of all brings vision through the haze

bubble

Inside this bubble, I see only myself
My passions, my thoughts, my dreams
The rest of the world, a warped photograph
From here in my seat of breathless peace

Please burst this bubble, make it quick
Let me sail from the clouds, free falling
I want to know the taste of clammy air
And feel the trust that I'm claiming

Just take my hand, I've landed on rocks
Yet, Lord, you are enough for me
Losing myself as well as my sin
I choose life over security

glass

Sunbeams are falling
Shards of glass
I’m in danger
Of being struck
By perfect light
