    I Rest

    Lord I give this thought to you,
    Thoughts of why.
    Thoughts of how.
    Thoughts of why these people didn’t know you.
    So I rest……
    I rest these thoughts and place them on a spiritual plate
    And serve them to you.
    For you and only you can save us in this time.
    We as children of God must search in our hearts and find…........forgiveness.
    But it is hard to escape the visions of the destruction, that lead to the reduction of life.
    Peaceful streets are now filled with pain and strife,
    caused by those who did not know you.
    I am at a lost of what to do.
    So I rest……
    I rest these thoughts,
    And I open my eyes and to the heavenly clouds I stare
    I kneel down and thank you for the lives you chose to spare.
    In this darkest hour, there will be light, that will shine down on us all.
    The walls of evil and deceit will fall.
    I rest my mind for I cannot find an answer.
    To the tragic event that has left me in a mournful state.
    But I smile when I see the long line outside of heaven’s gate.
    I find comfort knowing you will continue to Bless……Your mercy and grace will Manifest
    itself to the hearts that are now heavy with sorrow.
    I rest my mind, and pray for a better day tomorrow.
    So I close my eyes……and I rest…
