Safety

I ran away from safety because it was tasteless
My life was craving some more exotic flavour
Because of my attractions I drove a million miles to meet my desire
But when I got there it destroyed me, it tore me to pieces

Now I am broken, shattered. The things I loved hated me
Who can understand, who can make sense of this mess
How could the world be such a liar
How could I have been so stupid

I opened my eyes and looked around me, I found I was not alone
There were so many people littering the streets of this broken place
Then some quiet noise turned my head and I scanned the horizon
I saw a kind of light far in the distance, it seemed vaguely familiar but unknown

Now I have walked these streets, how I longed for the old way, whatever it was
Still I could sense that light, it seemed to be moving
If only I could go back, If someone could take me
I then I thought about that light, could that light be safety?

About Ben

Someone trying to understand and live relationship with God within the context and fabric of normal everyday life. Most people observe the deep need for change in our world; change that would mean seemingly countless yet avoidable difficulties and tragedies might be avoided. Those observations reflect the reality of our everyday world and our innate awareness of the possibility of something better. We live in the wonderful yet profoundly troubled present; we grasp for the potential that God had placed before us. I would like to communicate, in the most helpful way possible, what little I might be able to understand about this story through my own journey with God.

  1. Jesus is pretty amazing. His light penetrates the darkest place, if we let Him. Thanks for making your available to Him. 🙂
