A Shadow's Light

by Hope   Dec 14, 2019

My catastrophe; my faith,

I'm a little lost in this world;
walking down the street filled with shadows under the sunlight,

I see the sunlight follow me through my shadow,
I'm a ghost in my footprints,
I'm right where I belong when it comes to love, in exile;
a walking cosmic tragedy...

crying with a ghosts tears down my face; haunting me,
my scream becomes the sound of silence,
I'm born in this horizon; I live,
I'll live until the day I die,
I'll take a chance at a prayer for Hope in my ring of smoke;
when it comes down to a crucifix,
I'll let the power hit me...

the stars haunt me with a heart of gold,
a broken heart shining with a memoir,
I'm filled with the grace of sunlight in my shadow,
what does anyone see through the ghost?
it all lies beneath the stars,

when I'm wrong in my prison;
I find a little faith by what's been forgiven;
every voice holding a heart,
I don't stray too far from the shadows holding sunlight;
breaking through me.
