Awakening Truth

Life wants to give me a message

Each day when I open my eyes

To see with a vision of faith, hope and love

And choose truthfulness instead of lies.

What a pilgrimage full of temptation

Of sights and of sounds and of sins

That leads me to embrace the folly about me

Instead of the Spirit within.

But we have a merciful Father

And Shepherd of all that He made

Who leads us in the end by the virtue He left us

And by the Cross that for our sins He paid.

So I wake up to the passion each morning

That tears at my mind, soul and heart

And leaves me a wandering, vagrant and poor

Adrift but not alone or apart.
