Through The Ashes

Through The Ashes

Today they laughed and called me names Made me eat my guilt and shame Pelted me with stones and rock My pain and blood, something to mock

Today they have my neck underfoot Today they stilled me with a look Today they hurt me with their words Today they came in herds and herds

Tomorrow my body will be bruised Tomorrow I will feel ill and used Tomorrow I won’t have strength of mind Tomorrow sorrow and tears is all I will find

But someday he assures me this too shall pass He holds my heart in his hands and promises this will not last He wipes my tears and forgives my past He holds me steady, sure and fast

And though today I am in despair I know he is always and ever near I am certain that after the rain HE will lift me up again.
