    I don’t understand…all the pain I go through…
    If your are supposed to be peace…I know without you…
    Peace is not a possibility...
    So I try to find you and the moments in between…
    The good times and the bad…where you comfort me…
    Held in your arms for the moment…rescuing me…
    Like I was a child…pushed out of the eagles nest…
    Testing the clouds…failing the test…
    Spreading wings…Strengthless I struggle and fall…
    Into sin…fear again…caught back in your claws…
    Carried on wind crest…back to the nest…
    For shame I hide my eyes…failing the test…
    But back into you arms…back to peace again…
    Spiritual connection father…freedom from sin…
    Growing is hard…


    If you love me…why don’t I love myself…
    Sometimes envious…of things or someone else…
    I thought wholeness was completeness…
    Didn’t you fill me?...
    Through the water…a broken spirit…didn’t you heal me?...
    Why are the things so wrong…I like…
    And the things said to be right…I fight?
    Out of the nest…fallen towards depravity…
    Forces of gravity drawing me closer to gravity…
    Again…daddy…you are gently grabbing….
    Pulling me back up through the clouds…
    Child…I love you…even in failure I am proud…
    Don’t doubt…just trust me…I created you I know…
    Just like being born…it takes pain to help you grow…
    Growing is hard….

    a reflection...

    this piece reflects my very own sentiments...at times
    even my prayers ...
    growth...especially spiritual and emotional growth
    natural is so easy...innate as it is
    this piece touched many remnants... of what is me
    thanks for teaching me that no matter the lesson
    I'm learning in life...that my creator is always there to
    catch me if I should fall...
