It's you who choose to
stand alone there
with your barren soul.
And mark each right
of passage with such
a costly toll!
Instead of giving freely
you reside to keep it in.
Smother it with pride;
wrap it in fear, beneath
the scars of wounded skin.
What purpose has that
served  you?
Are you yet a happy man?
Do you walk these streets
freely? Or do you run them
as fast as you can?
Open up the floodgates!
It's been pouring for so long!
Pelting in such ignorance
has never made you
strong!
Putting up barriers, holding off
the ocean with your dam!
You've never found
the shepherd! Your such a
poor, lost lonely lamb.
LOOK out to greenier pastures.
Fields of plenty you will sow.
If you follow the shepherd
and give unto him freely....
His love, a miracle to bestow!
