It All Comes Down to You

It All Comes Down to You

A Poem by Osé Dazo
"

Here's a lyrics to a song God inspired me to write at a time when I've been plagued with thoughts of not being enough... in the midst of a world that's constantly trying to make you something else.

"


I.

I've been plagued with thoughts

of not being enough.

A deep nagging sense of failing

to measure up.

Leaving me so trapped.


The world shouts it. The billboards scream it.

Everywhere I looked, it's what they tell me.

I'm running in circles. Endlessly trying.

Becoming everything they wanted me to be.

And, I'm tired. So tired!



CHORUS:

NOW, ALL THAT MATTERS TO ME is You!

IT ALL COMES DOWN TO YOU! 

What You SEE when You LOOK at me.

What You FEEL when You THINK of me. 

For in Your eyes, I'm a beauty of great price!

I hadn't done a thing to earn that love, 

I'm SIMPLY LOVED!

I DON'T HAVE TO TRY HARDER NOW 

IN ORDER TO BE LOVED.

I'm more than enough 

for Your life to give up!



II.

Let Your fire BURN all these DISTRACTIONS now!

I won't let them take HOLD of me now!

My ONE AFFECTION is only for You, MY JESUS!

YOU'RE ALL THAT MATTERS NOW!!!(2X)

 

 

III.

So, let Your love overtake me now!

And let my fears fall to the ground!

That PERFECT LOVE that casts out all fears!!!

 

 

Bridge:

I don't need any other love

before You, my Lord

but Yours! but Yours!


I don't need any other heart

to win, my Lord

but Yours! but Yours!

Author's Note

Osé Dazo
At first, I hesitated to share this. In fact, I fought with myself before I posted it. You see, I'm no pro when it comes to songwriting. And I'm not a musician, either. lol! But since the day God came into my life 13 yrs ago, I began to write songs during my highs and lows. I couldn't understand it, either. It just came naturally, as if I could imagine the notes in it. Though these were once personal accounts of my journey with Him, now I'm beginning to share it to the world, not to be seen but to help others--because my heart is overflowing with joy to help those who might be struggling where I was struggling before. And I hope to share a full account of the story behind this song in my blog. However, I'm still looking for someone who can give life to the words in the song--one that could really catch the feel and the conviction God placed in my heart when I first wrote it. The kind of music with a great anointing that brought me to a real high that night. If that could possibly be you, or anyone you know, please let me hear it. And together, by the grace of God, let's change the world! ^^, Please let me know what you think in the comments below. Rude comments are welcome, too! It helps me improve my work, lol. XD

I adore people when they are strong enough to support their views themselves because people in today land have been so busy that they remember God only when they are devoid of all hopes but you expressed your love for the almighty in the most melodious way possible.

You have a really strong base here. Your emotions in this piece are intense and really readable and nicely conveyed. I can see this translating nicely into a song because even as just a poem, it has a nice musicality to it, which isn't always an easy thing to achieve. My main criticism here is that it's a bit bland. It doesn't feel like you've said anything really new here. What's missing, at least in my view, is the injection of yourself into this piece. As a writer, you're unique from everyone else that's writing similar pieces, you just have to show it, which I understand is easier said than done. But I believe in you!

One other thing, which really is just me being nit picky: your line, "Everywhere I looked, it's what they tell me" is grammatically incorrect. You've mixed the tenses (looked vs tell). It's an easy mistake to make and luckily an easy one to correct, too.

Keep up the good work, I hope this review was helpful!

It's calming to know people like you still exist. Today, God has become someone people blame when they trip in life. They often forget that God was also the One that helped them walk.
Beautiful piece! Keep up!
