It’s a deep, dark tunnel
I am forced to walk through to funnel.
The scars are deep, those it requires.
The voices are strong, never tiring in the mire.
The path is paved with the broken and the destroyed.
Their demise is how I must fill the void.
Learn from their mistakes. Don’t make it twice.
Turn away from my heart’s wicked, wicked vice.
It’s scary. It’s sad. It’s simply a lie.
Yet, there’s a light guaranteed on the other side.
There is a promise, a hope, a future.
If I can just find the strength and energy to endure.
We’re not here long, and this is simply a test.
If I can just keep my sight focused on Him and not the rest.
I will find all the peace and belonging I hope for.
All I must do is just open the door.
The path is loneliness.
The destination is depression.
Those who don’t struggle never quite understand the battle.
Those who battle without hope can never see beyond the rattle.
Those who find Hope, find a new tomorrow.
This is a Hope that doesn’t just have to be borrowed.
This is the Only One who gives true Hope and Life.
He is the answer. Will you let Him take away your strife?
He can help you. He came here just for you.
He longs to hold you, to heal you,to love you through and through.
All you have to do is see, believe and trust.
All you have to do is say His name, and your hope will never rust.
