Spiritually Familiar


SPIRITUALLY FAMILIAR

So lost, I’d never felt so alone And I prayed for somewhere to call my home Then this place that felt so spiritually familiar Finally appeared and wrapped me in her arms

Scared, alone, frightened, and downtrodden I felt safe in her embrace And the irony of my awakening consciousness Was that I was blind and fell in too deep

And in the depths I became alone Power was so strong within me But my wings had become shackled By the grace it took for them to grow

Windows clouded by the righteous So I decided to look inside myself To see the truth I’ve always known To grow I must be free to roam

And through it all I’ve always known I must break free so I can grow And what I’ve learned is what I know Within me I’m always home ---
