Serpents Hiss

I desire isolation

from all the complications,

but everywhere I go,

they follow me.

 

I desire freedom

lock up the memories and leave them,

after all that I’ve been through,

it’s plain to see

 

You’re up to something

bigger than this and I know

even though it doesn’t ever make sense,

one day I’ll be recompensed

find everything I ever missed

and at this revelation

serpents hiss.

 

I require God, Your presence

though satan’s stirring reconnaissance,

he can never crack Your fortress,

Oh Most High

 

I require Lord, Your spirit

I can’t see, but I can feel it

even in those times where all I do

is cry

 

You’re building something

better than this and I know

even if Your plans don’t ever make sense,

one day I’ll be recompensed

find all the things that I have missed

and at my trust in You

may serpents hiss.

 

I know You’re laying my foundation

You’re my Rock; You’re my Salvation

from Your grace I’ll never

try to run

 

I know in time that I’ll be happy

I’ll be smiling; I’ll be laughing

but You never said that getting

there’d be fun

 

You’re up to something

glorious in this and I know

it’s too wonderful to ever make sense,

one day I’ll be recompensed

give the pain a goodbye kiss

in my praising You

the serpents hiss.

Ohh dear ,you must understand life so well to say these words
i desire freedom,lock up memories and toss them away
i will be recompensed and get all that i ve missed
there must be a reason,for one day i will find my joy
joy that i have lost time ago..but who says
then and there is where i should be
to feel happy and smiling
who said it will ever be fun
God no one understands
under the sun ,still
you see none

There is something very lyrical about this. I could almost put this to piano. The cadence of it is very well done. I have to say, very nice job! I enjoyed reading it very much.
