Flight of failure


The vast ocean goes dry,
when a shadow is nearby,
life turns a flight of failure,
layers of hope seem to lie.

Man builds God breaks
Man struggles God shatters
Man devotes God dictates
Man heralds God hushes

The vast ocean goes dry,
when a shadow is nearby,
this shadow can be you or me,
with misfortune as a strong company.

    Without contrast, life, like our TV screens, wouldn't be as interesting. Solomon calls us to remember Vanity, vanity, all is vanity. We keep building and time knocks the buildings down, but without us trying again, we'd all be homeless. (Report) Reply

    We all think god will get us, and we overlook the cross of Christ, so don't hit your head too hard. (Report) Reply

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
