Lights glitter in the darkness….on the house across the street.
Christmas songs play merrily….at the mall.
The air is rife with anticipation….everywhere but in your heart and mind.
Oh forlorn wretch
Fighting the overwhelming urge to crawl back under the covers.
Life feels overwhelming to you,
Fear taking foothold
You talk, you fight the best you know how.
Trying to make changes that nobody sees, hoping it’ll be enough
Hushed conversations that make you wonder if you’ll make it through intact
Babe, Man, Saviour
Stretch out your hand
He will carry you
He will shield you
He will heal you
He will strengthen you
