Faded Rainbows

The vision, once so crisp and clear, now

Obscured by the fog in my mind

Fades as the sunlight dims on a dismal day

Battered about by the waves of despair,

against the current borne back ceaselessly into the past

Delicate sorrow fills my heart, the world as we once knew it, spirals to its fateful end

Ugliness replaces beauty in a world now sterile and cold

Once adorned by loving hearts now flattened by deceit

The lies, imploring action lest they lead to bitter end

Rob us of our freedoms by those we might offend

Take shape and gain momentum

Spin a deceptive web of death;

Death to life and liberty, wistful epithet

The meloncholy whisper of the past that we once knew

The rainbow, now slightly faded, turns a muted, milky hue

It’s arch tries hard to remind me that Your promise is still true

Confounded by the chaos, melts to many shades of blue

I’m going back to the places I’ve never been, missing people I’ve never met

Take me back to the places I’ve never been

To see the faces I’ve never seen

Take me back to Your promises

To where you wanted me to be

The fog it lifts

But The dream

Like the red balloon

Drifts slowly away

it dies

Deflated by the lies

…Missing what I thought I never had

Going back to the places I’ve never been

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
