Beyond The Darkness

Beyond The Darkness




We must learn how to see through a blackened veil
By believing what rests ahead of the journeys we all face
In doing so, the eyes of the soul within will prevail
Thus conquering stressful situations that came into place

It won’t be easy, but if we only give it a try
To keep moving forward beyond the darkness
We will eventually discover what exists on the side
Guiding rays of warm sunshine that comes from the love of Jesus 

Tears will still fall in the meantime, reflecting self doubt
Testing our strengths within the windows of our soul
Will depression try to break us into believing there is no way out?
Not if we believe that moving forward is the only direction to go

It’s then that we have to keep our souls open to let the rays show through
That will rescue us from the heartaches and stressors that came into our lives
Reflecting the presence of Jesus within a warm glowing view 
Resuscitating our souls, beyond the darkness; by guiding us to stay within his light
