Grow

I didn’t really know at first whether or not I’d put verse on this site, but guided words are guided words no matter the pattern. That being said. . . structure or not. . .

Sat in a familiar place late into the night
Sat there lost in my own little world
Barely hearing sounds, seeing no sights

Felt an itch on my arm
Scratched the bite that wasn’t there
And I came to terms with was and is
As Was and Is spoke to the air

There was time for old
Now is time for new
Shed the skin in prayer
What you were is put behind
What you are is there

You’ve come so far
But far to go
Take these words to heart
As you come to terms with old and new
And shed this skin of scars

I kept my silence
But my face showed weight
Can’t hide when it’s all so clear

Sometimes all you want to do is run
I chose to stay and wait
In the background while others carried on
I listened close to only One

There was time for old
Now is time for new
Shed the skin in prayer
What you were is put behind
What you are is there

You’ve come so far
But far to go
Take these words to heart
As you come to terms with old and new
And shed this skin of scars

Words of another came ringing back
From a bittersweet afternoon
Now I understand what was meant

A time of growth and being and light
A time to learn and love
Branded with a clean, new soul
Wings of your own will grow

My arm continued to itch
Straight into my heart
I understood. The light came on
Now I must move on

It’s a walk not always easy
Even though it doesn’t ask much
And there will be days your back will hurt
It’s just your own wings coming to life

There was time for old
Now is time for new
Shed the skin in prayer
What you were is put behind
What you are is there

You’ve come so far
But far to go
Take these words to heart
As you come to terms with old and new
And shed this skin of scars

Angels in the darkest places
Helped me stumble towards His light
And though I’m still the same man
I can’t ever be the same

You ask of me what happened
You ask what and why
I tell you truly
I made a choice. That’s all I can really say

I’m still so new for having come so far
I still have skin to shed
By the time the old is gone and burned away
What’s left is only life

But I ask of you one favor as the changes come about
Don’t see me for what I’ve become
See He who would mend you too
