Iron Wings

gushing through, rushing in,
hearts will move above all sin,
you cannot see, you cannot fortell,
as it pushes you by force and sound,
whipping in, you whip around,
keeping your feet on solid ground,
by faith pointing from the direction it came,
practicing balance through storm and rain,
it takes you here, it takes you there,
like a trap it pulls you to its snare,
you see, you hide, but then come face to face,
you find the mask behind the face,
you stand in the middle, he takes you there,
this heart will pierce its hardened stare,
he sends you angels to guard and fight,
to protect you with his strength and might,
these warriors stand guard, and with armor can withstand,
they block its force with their awesome wingspan,
with beauty and love, you see these gentle wings spread,
with feathers made of iron they protect love instead,
as the storms force rushes in, its deceived by its look,
for these wings of beauty cannot be shook,
as it approaches full force, it thinks it can win,
it looks weak from a distance as it rushes in,
but as it draws near, it picks up its pace,
the force can't pull away from the speed of its race,
it believes it can conquer its weakened prey,
until drawn in too close, it cannot run away,
methodically planned to tear this house down,
but it cannot see into this holy ground,
its focus, its charging with only one eye to see,
until it steps in too close, the iron breaks its debree,
love and honor stand strong, beat at its own game,
for the righteous overcome its winds and its rains,
it captures the heart and puts it back into place,
praising him in worship as you sit through these rains,
know your protection, stand with its ground,
speak it in, and then speak it out,
confirm with the heart, his words are alive,
allowing the spirit to fill and then rise,
the battleground shakes, these chains break and fall,
with the words of his spirit, winds whispering call.
