Walk On

Theme Week: Bravery – 1

The Courage to Live

He walks through empty pews,
feet crunching on the shards
of stained glass dreams. The news
has reached him: the abyss
gapes and consumes, unmoved
by what one man would miss.
He raises up his head,
though wearied and weighed down,
the smoking dark has bled
beneath the door, but he
looks up to find the light,
though he can barely see
it anymore. The cold
has crept into his hearth.
He feels so very old,
but he is still alive,
sometimes that is the most
that we can do. Survive.
Praying that God will give
the courage that we need
to wake up, and to live.

Remember

Remember you are loved
When your life falls apart,
Remember when it’s crashing that
You always have my heart.
Do not forget my name
When you fear no one cares,
Remember when you feel alone
That I am always there.
Don’t ever doubt your worth,
Don’t give in to the night.
If darkness is surrounding you,
Then I will be your light.
Believe within the storm
That you can make it through,
And even through the highest waves
That I will row with you.
Remember as you climb
That there is always hope,
And even if you fall, then you
Can use me as your rope.
Don’t ever choose to brave
The journey on your own,
Because as long as I exist
You’ll never be alone.
