Worlds apart….

I am the only one to blame for this
Somehow it all ends up the same
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
I flew too high and like Icarus I collide
With a world I try so hard to leave behind
To rid myself of all but love
to give and die


All said and done I stand alone
Amongst remains of a life I should not own
It takes all I am to believe

In the mercy that covers me


All I am for all you are
Because what I need and what I believe are worlds apart

So I pray.

—  from “Worlds Apart” by Jars of Clay
