the light in the darkness

I'm tearing down these walls.
walls please crumble down.
i need to have a smile emerge
i'm tired of this frown.
I'm breaking free these chains.
chains please break for me.
they bind me to these promises.
that never came to be.
I'm searching for this rainbow.
Rainbow please show me the way.
I'm caught in a storm of storms
no shelter for me to stay......
I realize these walls are strong,
they've protected me, i thought.
And I've feared i'm too weak to break them down.
but God whispers, "you are not".
I look and see these chains are thick.
They've bound me to a scar.
And I tell myself i'm not worthy to be free.
But God whispers, "yes you are".
This storm is dark, and long, and cold.
 hope fades softly as i scream "ahh-damn!"
And I start to worry i can't see the way.
Then God whispers, "here I AM"
