I'm an alien;

Not fallen,

But chosen.

Lost and found

Awoken from a coma

Stepped outta my shell

Heard a voice calling

And broke out of my cell.

Was missing in action

Distress signal glows

I'm waiting to go home

My best friend writes me now and then

Secret message in the sand

Something written in the sky

A quick flash as something flies by

If that makes me crazy

I'm not ashamed to be

If that makes me strange

Label me insane

But there's a secret place

Past the stars

Further than space

Somewhere out there

That's where home is

I'm completing my mission

Someday i'll meet the man who assigned it

I call it faith and ambition

Nothing will stop me from completing my mission

It could all end any time

But listen

We're behind enemy lines

Here is a message from the Sergeant:

Nothings gonna stop us

The plan still goes exactly as planned

I'll come unannounced just like I promised

Stand by until further notice

 
 
 
Poem was inspired by  a DC Talk song, "Jesus Freak"  Released: 1995
Some lyrics to the song:
What will people think
When they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak?
What will people do
When they find that's it's true?
Separated, I cut myself clean
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force
And a grace that replaced all the me I've divorced 
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain't no disguising the truth 
I've been marked by my maker
A peculiar display
The high and lofty, they see me as weak
'Cause I won't live and die for the power they seek 
People say I'm strange, does that make me a stranger
My best friend was born in a manger
What will people think
What will people do
I don't really care
What else can I say
There ain't no disguising the truth
Jesus is the way
