Void Staring

From The Homemaker Sessions
From The Homemaker Sessions

You can peer into the darkest part
Of humanity’s hideous heart
To the brimming of the inky void
As injustice and chaos destroy you

Face not the faceless enemy
This is not your story
Look to the light love’s labours leave
His unchanging glory

You can at to the calamity
To the viciously clamouring noise
Or you can choose to be something else
To be hopeful, a heavenly voice

Live not to cure the planet’s pain
It’s too great a burden
Seek first the kingdom, call his name
Keep your watch and pray
