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.

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

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
