I sit in the courtroom room with my head down low, very afraid that they might know. The silence was so loud I could hardly breathe, all of the air had gone straight out of me. All of the people sat there with their blank face, all of their minds fast on the race. The atmosphere was dark and cold, I felt like I needed to just be held. Dark eyes entered the room, fierce and peircing, they envoked doom. They sauntered across the blank dark room, they assumed their places, space they did consume. Then entered He who relieved all me fears. Sheilding theirn eyes hid the lies. He sat at the head with Mercy on his side. My mind stopped racing, my heart quit pacing, calm now was I. The lies still called out their dark tune, but their fears I did not consume. I looked at my Savior tear in my eye, how did I deserve him? He looked at me and said it all. I was his child loved from above and nothing I did would stop his great flood. A flood of love, and mercy, and joy. It was mine to take, mine to enjoy. He said don't believe the lies of darkness, I live inthe light I have nothing to fear. Expelled were the lies they fled from the room. The sky lit up, the doom was no more. I took all His love and mercy I could get and would never forget what he did for me. I live differently because of His gift, I like it that way I'll never go back to the wayn things were. I'll keep moving forward into the sunset sky, I'm beautiful in the beholders eye.
