A Hopeful Tomorrow

You’ll not do drugs
But you’ll do church
And one day it’ll
Not be to escape
Being bullied at school
But to find connection
With others and God
And you’ll trade the
Flaming chalice for the cross
And you’ll take your
Learning ‘bout your gender
And you’ll bring them
All along with you
Wile walking with Jesus
Cautiously towards the light
Of a hopeful tomorrow

A hopeful tomorrow

My Reflective Response to Psalm 139:13-16

“For You have created my conscience.
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise You, for I am awesomely, wonderfully made!
Wonderful are Your works—
and my soul knows that very well.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw me when I was unformed,
and in Your book were written the days that were formed—
when not one of them had come to be.”
(Psalm 139:13-16 Tree of Life Version)

My conscience she knew Your creation before she knew You, and You knew me before I was to know of the life journey I was to go on.
You knew my journey was to be a unique expression of Your love, and Your love gives me strength to carry on.
Even when I get anxious or feel uncomfortable with my body, Your love it is what ultimately gives me strength to carry on.
I know that even when hatred is spewed my way and disease gets ravaged upon my body, that it is Your love that will ultimately give me strength to carry on.
For it is the knowledge that I have of the fact that I and my journey are both expressions of who You are that I never ever had the thought of opting out.
And I Know my journey it was written in Your book even before any of it had come to be.

I Am A Beloved Daughter Of The Father

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding
That I hold very close to my heart
‘Cause people they denied me my opportunity to
Have a relationship with my very loving God
The opportunity to explore my femininity and robbed
Me my opportunity to live as a girl
I never got to live as a girl

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding
That I got by always pushing on forward
Even if I needed rest for a while
Eventually I would always go push on forward
To the understanding I can sill get to
Live as a woman who gets a relationship
Ever expanding relationship with her very loving God

I am a beloved daughter of the Father
And that reality is a hard won understanding

Love Yourself

The hardest thing to do is love yourself
Well after you’ve been pommelled with hurtful words
And not had chances to find out who
Who you need’a become to be truly yourself
Need’a be truly yourself

Oh I’ll try to wake each day now
With love for myself, the kind that’s unshakable
I may falter, have moments of self doubt
Still through it I’ll tray too love myself
With love that’s unshakable

Oh now wen I walk streets
They’ll see that I love God
By how I sparkle and glow

Oh they’ll ask me how I
Did get to be this way
I get to be this way

By being true to myself and
Unafraid to shine it out now
Unafraid to shine it out now

(It Will Take) Only Time

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
I’m on the right track
To being close to you

In my heart is where
You will be found living
Giving me the will to
Carry on with your grace
And your love to give

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
I’m on right track to
Bringing people close to you

In place of worship is
Where you will be found
Living, giving people will to
Carry on with your grace
And your love to give

It will take only time
Fore you to answer back
With a replay that says
I’m on the right track

A Hallelujah Now

Don’t feel you
Around me now
Your not around
Me now I
Need you around
All me now

All I gotta
Do is keeping
Me from you
And me surviving
Rather be living
Life with you

I feel blockage
Around and within
All of me
And it’s keeping
You from being
All around me

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God…

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God…

Can I get
A hallelujah now
It means exclamation
Of praise to
God her’s a hallelujah
A hallelujah now

Silly Smile

I’m doing things the world says I gotta do wen
All I wanna do is sing rocky songs ’bout you
Till I’m overcome with the uncontrollable urge to break out
Overcome with uncontrollable urge to brake out and silly smile

They’ll ask why I can’t wash it off my face
Why I can’t wash off my silly smile, silly smile
I’ll have courage to tell them why I silly smile
And I’ll say it’s all ’cause, ’cause of wonderful you

My silly smile will be the greatest prayer I’ve prayed
Greatest prayer I’ve ever prayed and it’ll be for you
For you and those that need to know you oh
All I wanna do is sing rocky songs ’bout you

All I wanna do is sing rocky songs ’bout you
Till I’m overcome with the uncontrollable urge to break out
Overcome with uncontrollable urge to brake out and silly smile
But I’m doing things the world says I gotta do

Desperate

You had a long respite
Lots of time to think
Now you know you’re desperate
And you need big courage
To seek what you’re needing

If you don’t tell others
What it’s that you’re needing
If you don’t go see
If others may also be
Needing what you’re needing now

People won’t know you fully
If you don’t go see
If others may also be
Needing what you’re needing now
What you’re needing now is…

You’re desperate for a life
With communal praise and worship
That’s so vary God centred
You won’t get it if
You don’t seek seekers of…

A life more God centred
It’s what you’re needing now
