I’ve been in the kitchen peeling away layers,
Laying down and unraveling my heart strings.
I have come face to face with the devil
Only to hold the hands of Jesus.
I’ve been intimate with the darkness
Only to appreciate the sun
And the light that unites us as one.
In the ocean of emotion I am tested.
Do I surf the waves or get caught in the undertow?
There is something to be said about battling illusion
And walking through fear.
I have always felt the depths of ocean
Only to find greedy pirates.
They shared their treasure alright
Only to realize I had a treasure all my own.
As I rise from the abyss I feel so free
Then another current surprises me.
I could fight it or I could float through the sea,
So see what other gifts await me.
Sometimes, I’m scared but I float through the night
Only to see your face in the morning light.
