It’s been a long time coming
Since my new return.
It’s been a long while craving,
ignoring every yearn.
A focus on what’s of Him
not on that of Earth
To press onwards and just win
a righteous kind of mirth.
Deny myself the pleasure
of adding to my sense of self,
I learned to put the measure
of “me” back on the bookshelf.
I.D. myself on what I believe
Listen to the story that I now weave –
it wasn’t easy quitting it
but I found myself outwitting it.
I found some new delights in life
to dream of fresh and new insights.
Heard stories louder than I had before
Better view on things to not ignore.
I learned the meaning of truth and love
and enjoyed the views of the stars above.
Lord, I lost sight of Your majesty,
To ignore You would be a travesty.
Bring me back to You I plead,
This return is exactly what I did need.
