Impossible To Miss

Imagine a pitch black room,

Dark as a tomb and then

suddenly a door springs open

Letting beautiful light in so people

can see again…

The lesson is this

The light at times comes glaring brightest through the darkness, impossible to miss

Childlike Faith

Heard a couple songs today, they hit me so hard, such powerful lyrics they got right straight to my heart

One in particular, was about a little boy asking a preacher if heaven’s real, and about him hitting his knees to pray with such fervent zeal

Childlike faith, such a precious thing, we could use a little more of that these days

For Another Set of Rhymes

Tonight I’m jamming to music, some classics, and some fresh sounds I’d never heard, soaking up the melodies, taking in every heartfelt word

From songs about new fatherhood, and songs about new Love, songs about the roughest heartbreaks and having the strength to overcome and so many others that I’d Love to tell you of …

As the singers tell their stories, one verse at a time, I’m sitting here letting my heart feel and find inspiration for another set of rhymes

In Your Beautiful Way

That old guitar is worn,

the wood is warped,

but it still sounds good,ok?

I’ve gotta say

the hours and years you put in,

my friend

they really do pay, and I

could listen to your heartfelt melodies

all day, keep playing your heart out

for as long as you wish and can

Yeah man, keep touching lives in your beautiful way

The Strength of a King

As his airplane takes off, Monty looks out the window, down at the hometown he’s leaving behind, excited for all the new adventures he’ll find

He’s also letting go
of a lot of painful memories
Years of nightmarish abuse
and vicious bullying
He’s off to follow his dreams,
Focused on his future,
nurturing better things

What couldn’t break him
gave him the courage he’d need,
Those who tried to make him a victim
Gave him the strength of a king

For Daddy

Ever since my childhood’s hour,

You stood toe to toe, with things I’ll never know, to keep me safe and I thank you for it

Thank you, is the best that I can muster, even though I think I owe you so much more.

Daddy you were one of my first heroes, you taught me what it was to be a man

I will never have it perfect, but even so,

I’ll keep in mind and hold tight to your example, and do the best I can
