I flail desperately for something I can lean my weight against, but I am told I have a rock and foundation.
I suffer a debilitating identity crisis, but I am told my name is engraved on his palms for eternity.
I have run and found no escape, but I am told he hides me in the shadow of his wing.
I have set the world on my back and destroyed myself with its weight, but I am told there is one who carries it for me.
I have failed in everything, but I am told I have a redeemer.
I am blind, but I have been told to set my sights on the unseen.
I am covered in bruises like a woman stumbling alone in the dark, but I am told I have a healer whose name is a light to my path.
I am, but I am told He Is.

I took a walk. The world is beautiful, is it not?

like the natural green
like running water
like the oak
like the flare
like a quiet woman
and what laughs
like her red dress

Katy Perry has a surprise song on her album. I posted it here so you can all listen to it without downloading. You should. It's well worth the 4 minutes and 9 seconds.
