Awakened

I walked in the shadows,

trying to fit their dreamworld,

hoping it would make sense.

I forgot who You made me to be.

 

I cut a zigzag trail,

zipping from this scene to that,

led by all the options.

I forgot who You made me to be.

 

The colors of the world

were gray and gray and grayer

and fading all the time.

I forgot who You made me to be.

 

But then one day Your light

crept across my slumb’ring soul

like sunshine takes a room.

You awakened me.

 

The color of the world

shifted to a thousand shades

of breath-taking beauty.

You awakened me.

 

I found forgotten script—

lost skills, lost passions, lost sense—

that You wrote into me.

You awakened me.

 

And I find that I’m perfectly happy

when I am who You made me to be.
