"This is what it is, this is who I am
This is where I finally take my stand
I didn't wanna fall but I about to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands"

-Newsboys, Born Again


Why am I the one to suffer
Through all of this pain?
When will anything worth living
Ever come my way again?
As I lay in bed
Crying to the pillow
I know
I might see you again
But my hope has grown wings
And left me

Just Maybe

Today, I'll start brushin' the dust off
Today, I might start spreadin' my wings
Just maybe. Today
Will finally be the day
I'll see you face to face
And with God-given hope
I might just fly. Fly, fly away

Why does my focus
Tend to stray?
Why do I lose faith when
I need it to stay?
Why are my prayers
So empty?
As I sit at home
Trying to get my thoughts straight
I face my fears
And walk out that door.

But finally,
Today, I'll start brushin' the dust off
Today, I'll start spreadin' my wings
Because finally, today
Will finally be the day
I'll hear you clearly
And you'll give me hope
And I'll fly. Fly,fly, away

Troubles are just paperweights
In the way of keepin' my thoughts straight.

But now know in my heart
That this is only part
Of what's to come

And with faith, Today
I'll start brushin' the dust off
Today, I'll start spreadin' my wings
With hope. Today
Will finally be the day
God, you'll whisper in my ear
Its time to fly
Just fly, fly away


The author's comments:
I wrote this, because, I'm always looking at things in a mentality of despair. I thought, "I just need to sit back and listen to God's voice" And with the parts about, I'll see you again, someone I know, and who is very close to me, just moved far away.
