Saved from my own cloaks of darkness; torn from grips of deceit. I lift my prayers to sun-blushed skies. The truth, I share, in shades of pink. In worship, undaunted, rouge-stained dreams turn to gold. The lies no longer bleed but melt into memories of a rosy-cheeked girl and fresh potpourri. Scattering petals of fragile carnations, I’ll live in peace hushed by pink-gold salvation. Saved by pink petals as delicate as lace. Never again, shall I fear my enemy. Cheeks blush with the love of a beautiful face, praise and devotion become the remedy. The mended heart beats in pink-hued harmony of shimmering hopes and blossoming glory. Tomorrow held in trusting adoration. In peace, I’m renewed by pink-gold salvation.
