I have been running….
Faster than U can Say, “Bolt”
I have also tried hiding,
In church like a mouse, inside the books,
The fridge, even in GOD's presence,
Just so that you won't strike me next
Could you not start searching
For me next year?
Did you perhaps not see somebody
Better suited on your way to me?
Did you really have to spot me
At rush hour?
But I made sure to be dull
I even sacrificed color blocking
Just for you…..
Won't you please tell me why you
Won't stop chasing after me?
I closed the door to my
Comfort zone but you still walked through,
Boldly telling me that
“HE said so”.
I stopped running at the sound of His voice
When it said:
“Where I have closed, no one can open,
Where I have opened, no one can close.
Not even you my daughter.
Accept your blessing as it is.”
