This is a poem written in my time of intercession for someone dear to me.

Setting off a flare – Ashly P Ash

If only I could impart my wisdom to you

The things I’ve had to learn while blue

All of the struggles I’ve had to endure

Your safety and happiness to ensure

To tell you I love you and “do as I say”

Without you knowing me back in the day

I pray and cry out and seek His plan

The small spark within you I try to fan

Your heart is so sweet and you once were so pure

But this path I see now is harsh I assure

So when will you hear and not feel attacked?

When will you turn and not show your back?

A “Wild World” by Stevens sure sums it up

And girl let me tell you, you need more than luck

Tools for your toolbox, why have you none?

Don’t you know you can’t paint with your tongue?

Reality is revealed in every dawn

Slowly the sun rays shine on the lawn

And when dark is lifted I pray you will see

Who really has guided you in your need

 

Feb day 001

 

 

I remember the circles that I traveled in

My head hangs low as I think on my sin

To allow my emotion touch the place you’re at

And how at my stories not an eyelash would bat

But here in this place of shame at the cross

I choose to lie down on this warm bed of moss

The woods and the shadows and bark of the trees

Shows me our of God of Creation calls me

Out of my shame and out of my pit

For my journey is one that only He knit

So resting in that knowledge applying to you

Believing that one day you’ll see anew

Perhaps we can walk on the path together

And reach out for others to join us forever

I want to tell you of the things to come

That right now you may think it is all in fun

But the smoke and the destruction really is none

Reality is revealed in every dawn

Slowly the sun rays shine on the lawn

And when dark is lifted I pray you will see

Who really has guided you in your need

Fire 041

You will wake and not know what you’ve done

So used to darkness and blinded by sun

The pain and the wounds are so very deep

And in shame you will struggle to not keep

Holding onto the counterfeit tools you have gained

Even the way of your false sense of fame

To come out is a path straight up a cliff

At every small break you will cry out so stiff

But taking this new way of sharing right now

I’ll be there that day to show you just how

To find your footing among the rubble of life

And guide you as you rid of the strife

I promise the top of the mountain you’ll reach

And once at the top you can lay on the beach

Looking down realizing that Jesus was there

Lifted you up while you casted your cares

The relaxing tide will come in and go

But you will not drown this time you’ll know

“No wasted pain” is my new prayer

But still I’m here setting off a flare
