R I S E

When you’re at your weakest

That’s when to be your strongest

The final choice is yours

You can drop or you can soar

Courage overflows with every beat of your heart

You are not a coward

No…. You are set apart

Nothing can stop you from breaking the course

You were created to rise above

And to take the chains by force

You aren’t destined for failure

You’re called to great valor

So rise mighty warriors

And conjure all your fears

Defeat all their doubt

And stand above their jeers

They’re not who you live for

They haven’t hold on your life

Please don’t wallow in their pity

Or be held back by their strife

You are called to so much more

Your honor holds you high

So rise up might warrior

And truly live before you die

S U R F A C E

You tell me this is reality

But how are we to know?

You tell me this world’s alone

But you hid its chance to show

You tell me that it’s right

For a girl to be ignored

For a boy to be jeered

And denied the chance to soar

You tell me that it’s normal

For fake smiles to exist

But who made this up?

And why’d it make the list?

You tell me to cry in secret

That help is for the weak

You say weird is a bad thing

And that difference is a sin

You give me empty complements

You think I hide in shame

You judge, pretend, and laugh

Just to be “the same”

You drive yourself insane

With this sick perfection

You accept the burdened weary

Meeting gestures with dissection

You say they’re too far gone

That they aren’t even worth it

You cause them grief and doubt

Until they cry till dawn

You trip, tease, and hate

To hide your face from pain

You tear others down

And wind up with no gain

Why are you so afraid

To let go of the past?

The past is self-explanatory

It’s meaning says it’s done

You have a brand new slate

And you don’t need to run

My God is greater

And stronger than your sin

You don’t have to carry it

He’ll take it from your back

He’s the God of second chances

And He told me to tell you that
