ADRIFT AT SEA
In my quest to unveil Your hiding place
My efforts have brought me out into a vast water desert.
An oxymoron? Not really.
In my mind this wasteland is a dry and lonely habitation
while the sea, the unfathomable depth
between You and me.
As far as my eye can scan, nothing but an aquatic blanket.
Yet more hope than descending into the marine underworld
where darkness and lack of oxygen shatter all hope of opulence.
The sea is extremely capacious and my prayer so feeble!
What odds has a miniscule pauper
To touch the finger of the Almighty?
None, if I turn my back to the plow.
So, though near impossible, my mission continues
Hoping that Your mercy will guide and deliver me
To realize my treasured pursuit—
Your presence today and forevermore.
Don’t stop believing in your dreams
Don’t stop trusting in His ways
For He is the life that’s within you
And His love will brighten the darkest of days
