At the end of this barrel
Is either death or life.
When you look into the barrel of a gun
You’re looking at eternity
In this life or the next,
This barrel is a train track bringing the steel engine that will send me home my God
It is the tightrope I will have to walk
For the rest of my life if I’m spared
Trudging lightly for fear of snapping my mind’s rope
This barrel is a museum
Commemorating the lives that ended at the end of it
This barrel is a coffin.
In this moment
I’m just not sure for my mind or for my body. -my experience being held at gunpoint
I'm tired & my brain drained, but here is my light - the only thing maintained after the storm. The light is electrifying, light enough to have you levitating, high enough to see the waves singing "Hi, come back to me." These oceans of sound...it's a vibe..that springs up in me. I call back & say Lord you lifted me!
the touch of His hand healed in contradiction to Mosaic Law / followers of the past stumbling in the dim light of hope alone, / but His death enables us to live in pure light / and I believe if we were created in the image of a God who said “let there be light” / then maybe we can hold our palms outward, and let our touch illuminate the very darkness of each other’s souls
Let my light so shine that men may see my good work, i won't front and pretend that my lyrics don't bring a certain aura too it. Sometimes i may have writers block so you can say that i don't make cents, nor have i made change but i do have a dollar and a dream that remains hidden in a world that only the strong survives... think about it.
Possession isn't an option
Though they long to hold what can't be obtained
Grasping fragile glass like ideas
When inside, there is a light amonst the emptiness
I long to touch it
Palming the darkness
Back to back as if that is the only option
Can I feel it
Can it fill me
Can it heal me
Am I ready for illumination
Clearing corners that have seen better days
Dusting away remnants of scenes from distant yesterdays
Now I wish to hold, to possess that which can't
I want to have but I must share
There's nothing about the light that is aligned with selfish
After I grasp it
Am I selfless enought to pass it?
It’s in His hands
My life, my fears, my deepest regrets
His love shines light on every dark place but it represents conviction, not condemnation
Only He can give me life
Only He can break me through
His love is electrifying
It draws the most broken into a place of peace
The lonely into a place of comfort
His love is real
His love shines light
That's so beautiful

@kingdomwriters exactly! 😃
The Light- he came, to erase and remove darkness. There’s power in his name and his name alone because he’s the mighty one, he sits on the throne. He gave authority to you and authority to me - to speak and live not bound but free! He holds all power in the palm of his hand and because of his power I don’t sit I stand. I stand and share his goodness I praise his holy name, thank you Abba Father for the light. My life has never been the same!
