Ponder – a song

pon·derˈpändər/

verb

1. think about (something) carefully, especially before making a decision or reaching a conclusion.                   

When I was a little girl

And fairytales were my whole world

I stopped to ponder You

Nighttimes wishin on a star

Wondering where and who You are

I stopped to ponder You

Struggling and livin on a dime

Lost and cryin all the time

I stopped to ponder You

Had some kids of my very own

No longer feeling all alone

I stopped to ponder You

Getting older every day

Wondering if I’ve lost my way

I stop to ponder You

Answers still not comin round

Hoping we’re all eternity bound

I stop to ponder You

This whole world leaves gifts and pain

It’s the journey and the friends we gain

Yet no matter where I am and what I do

I stop to ponder You

Come Back

I looked for good and I found it

I looked for bad and you had that too

I lost myself when I was too busy

Searching endlessly for you

 

Forget it all you cried

Forget I made you bleed

I’ll make it worth your while, I swear

So come on back to me

 

I looked for love and chased it

I looked for thrills, soft and bare

I came face to face with angels

Pulling me back to your cold stare

 

Forget it all you cried

Don’t believe the truth you see

I’ll make it worth your while, I swear

So come on back to me

 

I looked for a door and found it

I looked for peace beyond your room

If I never see you again my love

That’d still be way too soon

At This Point in My Life

Excerpt from “At This Point in my Life”

by Tracy Chapman 

…..

At this point in my life

Although I’ve mostly walked in the shadows

I’m still searching for the light

Won’t you put your faith in me

We both know that’s what matters

If you give me a chance I’ll try

You see I’ve been climbing stairs 

but mostly stumbling down

I’ve been reaching high 

always losing ground

You see I’ve conquered hills 

but I still have mountains to climb

And right now right now 

I’m doing the best I can

At this point in my life

…..

At this point in my life

I’d like to live as if only love mattered

As if redemption was in sight

As if the search to live honestly

Is all that anyone needs

No matter if you find it

You see when I’ve touched the sky

The earth’s gravity has pulled me down

But now I’ve reconciled that in this world

Birds and angels get the wings to fly

If you can believe in this heart of mine

If you can give it a try

Then I’ll reach inside and find and give you

All the sweetness that I have

At this point in my life

At this point in my life

Poetry

Evil One

You say one thing

Then do another

Then act surprised

Calling me the liar

You hide, disguise

Hate and attack

Then turn around

And pour blood 

Down your back

Your mask is removed 

I’m not tempted to play

The real you found out

You’d never love me anyway
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

John 8:44

…He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
