Bitter But Better
The darkness creeps so soft and fast,
And terror fills our bones to last.
But light is there in all its glory,
I fight my flesh because He is worthy.
Test me now and bend me so,
Interrupt my peace till I declare you foe.
I'll walk this tasteless road with eyes transfixed
On to that Mount where our transgressions were fixed.
The phantoms jump from the dark,
And tempt me with gifts, but I will not lose my spark!
I have to burn within me, so I have heat there to give,
So a common failure such as I may live.
