So Clean

I scrub until my fingers bleed,
mixing with the soapy floor.
Your presence ever haunting me,
standing by the grimy door.

This isn’t who I’m made to be,
but the dirt won’t wash itself away.
A mind can’t think unless it’s clean,
so clean I must, another day.

Remember You

Did you see me standing there alone,
nervous, shaking wreck that I was?
Did you know how much it meant to me
when you pulled me from the mud?

Angelic woman, I hope you did,
for your actions deserve my utmost praise.
I’ll never be the same again.
I’ll remember you for the rest of my days.

Speckled and Sewn

Our flesh has been speckled
with change, those moments
that at the time seemed
microscopic, yet are now sewn
into the fabric of our character.


She cries before sleep,
every night it’s the same.
The men have all left,
and the heartaches remain.

To share in adventure,
what a faraway dream.
To be fought for and loved,
crucial part of a team.

Her value is greater
than what she’s been told.
Captivating and kind,
yet her hope’s become cold.

O Lord, lavish strength
on her weary soul.
Help her to realize
she’s so beautiful.

Wild at Heart

Asleep at the wheel,
his life is like that.
Stripped of adventure,
existence quite flat.

No battles to fight,
no beauty to win.
It doesn’t seem right,
wearing a fake grin.

How did it happen?
Where was the wrong turn?
Car keeps on moving
while his wounds still burn.

God, give him courage
to be wild at heart.
With Your grace there is
always a new start.

Pray for Tomorrow

Who is the man I’ll be tomorrow?
Only God knows that for certain.
So today I pray, devoid of sorrow:
protect me from the oily serpent.

Teach Me Goodness

O Lord, my rock,
my love, my all,
keep me grounded
so I don’t fall.

O Lord, my God,
my strength, my hope,
throughout hardships
help me to cope.

O Lord, my joy,
my song, my guide,
teach me goodness
cut off from pride.
