Stop Me

From holding back and calling out
From pleading I scream and shout
From taking in all of this pain
From drowning myself in the rain

From hoping that you’ll come back soon
From acting like some shit bafoon
From resting on what fate may give
so that I can go on and live

As I Explore

From day to day, I fend off so
But He tells me, “You’re not alone”.
“When you’re in doubt, or eyes are sore,
I walk with you, as you explore”.

In righteous ways some are unkind
And at wit’s end your patience tried
‘Praise me, my child – never sigh!
I keep you safe, so always smile’.

So now, I go from day to day
“I’m not alone”, I always say
My eyes wiped dry. These eyes, not sore
He walks with me as I explore.
