“Things We Face”

Serenity – we just don’t know it.
Obscenity – we’re used to seeing it.
Imperfection – we all share it.
Desecration – we ruin what’s sacred.

Destroying what we fear –
We’re far from that point.
Being happy in every day –
It’s elusive, not our purpose.

No sense in merely existing
When we’re called to really live.
No sense in keeping score
If we’re the only ones playing.

It’s just too dark here now
To see anything around us.
We want out of this place –
The labyrinth of our failures.

Light reaches us and we turn away.
Oh, we used to welcome the sun
But now we wait for the moon,
Just to get through another night.

Long, dark roads and dead ends –
It’s so familiar and so tiring.
Oh, it’s just wearing us down,
We’re just existing now, it seems.

Things we face
In everyday life
Can build us up
Or tear us down.

We can all really live
And not merely exist.
We can breathe again,
The air so fresh and new.

If it’s in our grasp,
What’s stopping us
From getting it now
And embrace change?
