Seeking Solace

Seeking the solace of God But finding no rest Leaves me feeling empty Not sure I can stand the test Lord can you hear me In the midst of the world’s pain? I know I am being selfish But I have nothing left to gain All I want is peace within That silences the devils…

Peace Before Light

Keeping the demons at bay As the night slips away  Hoping that the dark of night Gives way to peace before light Seeking the Almighty’s cover As memories try to hover Knowing a past of pain Has already left its stain There is nowhere to hide When the terror lives inside So I must lay…
