I Run

July 20, 2011

This was a work in progress and I managed to finish it in time for The Worship Project my church was having. I read it as part of a performance piece I helped choreograph with a friend who is such a beautiful dancer. I think she managed to capture the hopefulness of the piece. 🙂

I Run 

I run,
Away from them, him, her,
I run

Lost and Confused,
Seperated and removed
far from your presence
I Run

Battling fears
with hoisting spears
still too strong for tears
I Run

Hearing a voice
Rising above the noise
a silent Hope screams loud
I stumble and I pause

A tug at my heart
heartstrings play a chord
What’s left within me implores
I Turn

Lights lit by Love
eminating at every curve
Knowing I do not deserve
I hesitate

Seeing your face
I’m touched by your grace
the Hope I dare chase
Into your presence
I run
