the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 121
Lover of my Soul

Lover of my Soul
I am no conqueror
What battles have I won
Wrought of sin and sorrow
Abandoned and forlorn

No darkness night would lift
No light would shine through me
If I but claimed that my eyes
Can truly open to see

This groping I can walking
Confident strides to me
This stumbling I call leaping
Iím blind but I think I see

I am the one to determine
Whatever shall be mine
And lead this life and walk this path
That I alone define
That man who lived so courageously
Captain of his own soul
That master of his fate
He believed he had control

I pull away from the strings
I shall not be a puppet
I carve my accolades
Meet expectations I alone set

Chains donít hold me down
I am a free man in prison
I live to leave a legacy
I feed on rationalism and reason

Man evolved from monkeys
The stars came from nowhere
I look to the heavens
Oh how life is so unfair

And as I stumbled blindly
Across the glass strewn road
He came to seek and find me
Take me home to His abode

And as I wondered wildly
And fed my drunken dream
He came to hold and heal me
Let me drink from His stream

Though I am now found
I still desire control
Help me Lord relinquish all
For youíre the lover of my soul
