Ciphers of Grace

Fragile grounds we tread
The same sickness expressed relative to environment
Seeking ways to feel better
Turbulence contrived of incompatible tastes
The rose is not the stem

Is it the petals or the thorns that you see the most?
When in truth the substance of the garden
Is an identical vine sprouting from the same root
One flesh and the same bloodline

Our veins are rivers of red flowing into a single ravine
Narrowing in, as we merge into one, singleness dies
Friction comes with growing
Were learning how to live what we say

Love is true as learning how to
Fractures collide, we break to heal again
Coming to an understanding of our natures
Opposites converge and were on a collision course with destiny

Riding the wind, surfing sky waves
Caught somewhere between feeling wanted
Or just putting up with someone to keep you company
Better than winding up alone

Tell me Im the best and treat me the way your words suggest
When did culture become the definition of who we are?
Can you embrace me even if Im foreign to the tide
Of your point of view of the ocean

We are not the water, we are the signals
With SOS hearts speaking prayers like flares
From islands of misunderstanding
And a God that speaks our love languages fluently
As we still learn to interpret ourselves through ciphers of grace

Translating the essence that is you
Surely my yearn to know you still means something
And Ill never quit star gazing across the candlelight
Into your eyes, even if we dont always see things the same way
