Words have always visited quite regularly
Often present and always mindful
Especially when the heart presents ready and un-doubtful
Used to describe and respond somewhat to things
Many times relating to anything that will aim to appease
To soothe our itching ears for the worldly validations that we lust for and crave
Over time the craving persisted, making gods of what our gifts could do
So the world can see how amazing and beautiful we are
We let it consume us… So occupied
We soon learnt; all this will never fully satisfy
Your heart seems to have summoned us nearer
Calling us consistently from the deep, hither
It demands, invites, captivates and enslaves
We stutter and finally pause in surrender
Suddenly the heart wants to camp here, to stay a while and rest here
Brushing off the hesitancies to choose anything else but here
This is an unknown yet familiar territory
Risking vulnerability, It is Home, and oh so Heavenly
Your confident pursuit demands for our attention, loves so reckless
Never has our heart desired, and yet we lay here defenseless
Convinced that we should pause the fight and just make way
Compelled and drawn to perhaps reside for good, consider you and stay
The look you give we can’t avoid, it is so compellingly safe
It whispers to the shadows inside to surrender at its relentless pursuit
oh! Tell us please, how do we now behave?
Assured by your steady and harmless grip
Firm enough to embrace the nuanced complexities apparent on our face
The cardiac arrest has begun- for some, a bit terrifying to embrace
Your roar so captivating- leading us here, Home again.
You have our attention; silenced at last; we are Listening
What a strange and beautiful phenomenon
Lord! Here we are, Hearts locked down; considering You Again!
Receive our Repentance!
