she is the brightest star on the darkest night,
because she understands how it feels to be lost
she is the mountain that offers support and shelter,
because she understands what it means to be a survivor
but she is also the ocean,
pulling her waves back into herself as she rests between breaths —
and she hopes that the world understands
that even the sun must set to be able to rise.
Disagree with my methods? Just look at my heart
Methods spawn from perspective. Where were you at the start?
Too many people are afraid to speak their mind
Cause revealing your truth makes you one of a kind
You open yourself to hate and confrontation
Judgement and Hypocrisy wrapped in misinformation
They think they know you because of what they heard
People talk behind your back? I know it's absurd!
My experience is just that- but i tell you what I see
Synonymous with church is often Hypocrisy
The more you share and expose your true self
Makes people either embrace you or put you on the shelf
Cause some people only make room for what they can control
What I've witnessed isn't limited to age-young or old
The normal religious life just isn't for me
Go to church, work your job, and have a family!
I'm not saying there's shame in any of these
But people create their lives only for others to please
We follow our rituals and go through the motions
We'll give away some money and do "Jesus calling" devotions
But where is the drive to see real change transpire
Stop judging when you've not been through their fire
My only resting place has been at Jesus feet
I ask a lot of questions to most people I meet
I'm constantly learning and growth is my only option
Sacrificing my life for your opinion ain't up for adoption
Things change. People change. You bet I will too.
Even if you hate my message, I'll still be loving you.
