A Reflection of His Glory

When his light shone on me I felt naked and ashamed But with his light is his hand To take the me that is hidden The me only I see in the mirror Me that is insecure and afraid That life will come crashing down With his hand is his spirit To reveal God to…

Trading Favors

I learned something today Favors are never free They come with expectations With unspoken obligations And subtle intimidation’s   So I’ll try not to take advantage So I never have to compromise No handouts, no free meals I’ll try to only make deals No exploitation of the feels   But won’t that be so lonely…

Fight back

Let mother sing

Let me tell you a secret See, my mother loves to sing She sings songs that move her She sings blues that soothes her She sings ballads that please her   Let my mother sing a song Sing to me, sing me lullabies Her sweet voice that lulls me to sleep One that is familiar…
