“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Of Moses

i cover my ears with the palms of my hands

no i don’t want to hear the screaming

i don’t want to see the pain

of my people

i need to hear your voice

but i can’t if i’m deaf to the world

no i can’t if i’m running away

from the suffering

~

you said take the rod in my hand

and remove my sandals

remove my sandals

look the ground on which i stand

is holy

and i’m a sinner

you said from the start i was chosen

to bring freedom

to bring freedom

from the slavery of our choices

i need to lead them

i need to free them

~

here i am with a trail behind me

all the hurting and the helpless

and even further an army led

by a broken promise

i feel the hate of a godless brother

i lose my fear because i know what we have

because i know that we are

your people

~

you said take the rod in my hand

and lift it to you

lift it to you

part the waters and find land

and trust you

to hold them for us

i can say when i reach the end

now i see  you

now i know you

for the one called jehovah

is holy

and i’m a sinner
