Coursing, surging
Destiny, fate, temptations

Like candy floss in my mouth,
Like smoke you disappear
I’m chasing after ghosts it seems
Not sure you’re really there.

Wrapped up in your promises,
Your perfect warm embrace.
You’re the only type of daydream
I would give my life to chase;

I waiver in and out of
using God in my favour
I wanna pass these English papers ya see
Become a journalist go overseas

I’ve got it all planned out
Cause that’s the way
it makes sense
It’s a truth I can focus my lense
And I’m asking god to help me

To bless me in my ways,
But it’s been days since I’ve been
stuck in this grey haze
Not really sure if it’s
a passing phase

Cause I have favour when I walk
the way of my saviour
I literally can do anything my heart does desire
He gives me the fire

When it’s me tryna distinguish the plan
Cause I’m impatient and I can’t understand

It’s like
“Yo gimme the map” ,
eventhough I’m a
blind man and I’m walking right offa track

He makes your ways straight
He has the perfect plan but
you must wait
And don’t be afraid of passing times,
Or rising crimes
Or pressure that seems to suffocate

And surround you
God will confound you,
Yes he will astound you,
Just let your worries melt

Trust in the lord ,
His word is a sword
Not in

The words of man that will lead you astray
You may have a past but the lord has today
And he’ll be sure to make a way.

My heart reads like a letter .

Convincing my lips
to Speak like a widow who lost her husband in a terrible accident .

“It’s like burning everything around us to keep the cold at bay. To keep the warmth in our tones , to keep that comfort between us there.
To prove that what he had was more than a feeling. But I didn’t know that the smoke that came from those flames would slowly be the death of us.”

“It’s like we were fighting for our lives while in a car that’s flipped 50 times. Who could’ve known this would happen. All we could do is watch it unfold.”

“And I know that I should forgive him but ... he stopped fighting first.
I know the circumstances were against us but I just don’t know what to do with this sudden end.

He should have stayed even just a little longer .
Why wasn’t the love that we had stronger ?
