Chasing After Life

God (Inspired by)

I was trapped in a pattern

of try, fail and repeat

so eventually I stopped trying.


But you said I wasn't meant

to carry this weight.


Your shoulders could

support my burdens

better than my weak body.


I've wasted half my life,

but now I give the rest to you

to provide a new direction.


Finally I know what life can be,

so I'm chasing after it.


Show me your heart

and change mine

until it mimics yours.


Reveal to me your purpose

so I can change the world

in your name.
