Life Saver

 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †

Every bone in my body aches
I want to cry but
Pride keeps my mouth shut
So I shake with fear as
Horrors race through my head
Quickening my heart
Like a fightersí before the fight
My knees tremble and
I want to flee this place
Get away from death
As far as I can
But I, we, are trapped here
On this floating, spinning rock
Suspended in a sea of blackness
We have yet learned how to tread
Faith our only life raft
Floats ahead of us
Bobbing in our minds eye
It is always there
Though most of us will not seize it
Until our lives depend on it
Defiant we mock it
Take it for granted
Like spoiled children
Certain that our God
Will not punish us
No, not me
He loves me
He said so, and consequently
Faith is carried at armís length
Yet we donít dare abandon it
In case,
That is all there is
All roads lead to death
Bring your life saver and
See if it can save your soul
