My Separate Wrecks

"It's taken me 50,000 separate wrecks to get here,"



and each wreck has left me naked;

naked and drowning in everything I grew up with.

But one of these days I'll wake these weary eyes.

And yes, one of these days I'll spread my wings and fly.

Let me count the wrecks, for I have named them all

All have become another priceless memory stuck under my eyes

And without sun is where I will behold them again

I'll reflect, restart, and jump right into my next wreck.

Broken, weary, but with a smile is where I stand

And I stand beside my mistake:

clinching it like a brother slowly dying,

kissing it like a lover I'll never see again.

Falling upon deaf ears in the mist of another heartache

wow, doesn't that sound like another tragic sunday

And I have sat there once again

I have sat here as well

I have held your words and I have let them slip

I have changed my mind, my heart, my hair

And through everything I have learned once again:

These wrecks have spoken,

These coffins have shouted,

the rear lights are flashing red,

and under my breath I will hear my heart sing:



"It's taken me 50,000 separate wrecks to get here,


And I've learned absolutely nothing."



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is the big reality. We can only keep on by His grace. Great writing. Thanks

You are SUCH a gifted writer!! Been through a few wrecks myself... several more than I ever felt were my share. I take great comfort in 2 Corinthians 5:17. Even though the the old has become new, there's no guarantee that we'll never experience another wreck. Many are terribly disappointed by that mistaken view. But it sure makes a difference when we know who to call on when we do.
