A song screams silently inside my head

A song screams silently inside my head
Curses, blessings, words that are said
No hope, no life, yet born to achieve
Choosing the language I need to believe

Another day, same ol’ fight
Soul poorly lit, losing sight
Bones grow weak, eyes close slow
Can’t feel the pain, can’t feel the glow

Waking up, a brand new leaf
Turn it over, same ol’ beliefs
Intentions grand, easy to say
Knowing truth, can’t stop destructive ways

Sing out loud, my mouth shouts for something
Shout out loud, my mouth sings for nothing
Lift up my hands, surrender leads to something
Bow my head, knowing I have nothing

Grace sounds easy, too good to be true
Accessible to everyone, gentile, Jew
Grace echos gratis, free of charge
Small on rules, the spirits large

Definition free, don’t cost a thing
Boundless, limitless, cost everything
What once were gains, now called loss
Searching for life, found at the cross

Accepting myself, not easy to do
Believing essential, all things new
Higher power, strong enough
Humility hard, realities rough

Sing out loud, my mouth shouts for something
Shout out loud, my mouth sings for nothing
Lift up my hands, surrender leads to something
Bow my head, knowing I have nothing

I love, I try, I’m bold, I’m shy
I fall, I lie, I soar, I fly
I jump, I leap, I bow, I sigh
I moan, I groan, I live, I die

A song screams silently in my head
Curses, blessings, words that are said
Choose to believe, promises given me
Language changes, grace becomes beauty
