Metamorphosis (Renga)

Co-authored with Tim Drew

A heart’s sacred trust
Fragile and easily bruised
Murder of the soul

Sheltered by walls of numbness
Condemned to a living death

A life with no soul
The pained motion of living
No one understands

A beggar at mercy’s door
Heart and soul long to be healed

Child of innocence
No longer is the soul pure
Desperately seeking

Fervently searching for soul
Seeking warm sanctuary

Longing for answers
Shell of what was once living
Utter emptiness

Hiding from the sight of God
Yearning for a safe haven

Child of the shadows
Seeking ways out of darkness
Starving for the light

Darkness is more familiar
Invisible from our sight

Bruises unnoticed
Such tormented innocence
Self is shamed away

Tainted by the sins of man
God's love will never falter

Accepting God's light
Shame begins to melt away
Innocence reborn

True healing comes from within
By the grace of God

Shining in the light
Through Him all things possible
Innocence reborn

A new path lit by God's love
Loved unconditionally

Out of the shadows
Behold, the new child of God
Sacred trust restored

A new measure of balance
New path of truth, love, and light

Welcome this new day
Divine child shines with the light
Safe haven is found

Deep love from salvation’s hand
Rendered to this world in peace

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
