The Shoes Around My Soul

I was your age yesterday
Living in another time another
Where the trivial felt so painfully
Where I couldn’t feel the weight on
my soul just yet
Where the words couldn’t quite sum
up how I felt
Where the future felt so far off
I was there in your shoes
Breathless and in pain
I’ve worn every single pair
Forty sets spun around
my soul like a noose
Covering the same old ground
Covering the same old pain
The skies can open and grace can
come in
But the shadows still remain
In a tranquil setting
The heart begins to shine
Surrounded by those who get it
Surprised by kindred souls
The door to Narnia has closed for
But the key remains in my hand
And the music lingers in my heart
