Take Me To Church

The lights had all dimmed and darkness paved the way,
My thoughts got extinguished and all my dreams faded away,
There never was a reward and the prize just walked away,
The past wasn’t clear to me, when the future blurred my way,
There was no route of passion, and no one cared about compassion,
I wished to pray, for my sins done and undone,
For the knots left behind in the smooth road,
A blanket lay on the mattress of the truth and I knew I had to make a confession,
Take me to church, was all I said, ‘cause He was the one calling me.

The asphalt of the cheeks was moist and glistening,
The rivulet shimmering down, just like pearls falling,
There wasn’t an answer, but I didn’t even know the question,
There wasn’t a solution, but there wasn’t even a puzzle,
Except maybe my face was, unsure of itself,
There was no way of the right, nor was there any for the wrong,
It wasn’t about exclamation or surprise; it was all about expectations,
I had to redeem myself; I had to shout out loud, I had just failed myself and my aim,
Take me to church, was all I said, ‘cause He was the one leading me.

Over the din, the creak took me away to a new place,
Not just a door opening, but a new avenue presenting itself decorated,
There had been no decision, but there wasn’t any choice too,
The path was singular and the journey was to be made alone,
It was time to put a curtain behind me, and to walk into the veil ahead,
It was time to work, and to persevere, and to push; to push far ahead, just of myself,
The moon on my face resolved all of it; it wasn’t about aptitude, but it was about attitude,
Grit in my eyes, power in my thought, pace in my actions, and strength in my voice,
Take me to church, was all I said, ‘cause He was the one pushing me.

    We have to get up when we fall, never back down, keep pushing ourselves, believe in the one god... and always smile...
