Ideas for a better title would be greatly appreciated. 😉

April 16, 2015 ~ Why Do You Think You Ache?

reaching-for-the-stars

Why do you think you ache

as you stare at the stars?

Why do you think you feel

like you’re always behind bars?

 

Why do you think you ache

at the sound of birdsong?

Why do you think you feel

like something’s just wrong?

 

Why do you think you ache

lying silent on your bed?

Why do you think you feel

like you’re never fully fed?

 

Why do you think you ache

for something you can’t explain?

Why do you think you feel

like you weren’t made for pain?

 

Why do you think you ache

for a home, belonging place?

Why do you think you feel

like you’re on a constant chase?

 

Why won’t you admit that

there has to be something more?

Why won’t you realize the

emptiness of what you’re living for?

 

Why won’t you open your eyes

to heaven’s touch upon this land?

Why won’t you recognize

the dust of angels in the sand?

 

Why is it so hard for us

to see glory in the skies?

Why do we keep refusing

to simply open up our eyes?

 

Why can’t we seem to grasp

His fingertips on our skin?

Why won’t we acknowledge

the mystery we’re living in?
