The Lake Gives Way

The lake breathes gently tonight. The shores receive the waves with a smile seen only by the trees.
This place casts a spell on both sides.

It moves within me.
Pushing the molecules in my lungs.
Driving every amount of power away from my legs.
Dropping me to the earth like a bad habit.

The lake speaks now.
With my ears to ground and my heart in my hands, the lake now speaks.
Its language reminds me of something I knew but forgot.
Something I loved but pushed out of my life.

I think.
As my head slowly reaches eye level with the lake, I think.
I calculate the number of times Iíve been in this spot.
I assess the risks of standing once more.
I gauge the degrees of my scars.
And I stand once more.

The waves beckon to me.
They move back and forth singing out their stories for those who listen.
The songs resonate from one side to the other, echoing like a powerful waterfall.
And from no where I hear it.
And from somewhere I can see it.

The lake gives way.
Every piece of me begins to shiver
It feels as though the earth has just broke in half
All around me each walk of life becomes blurry.

The lake gives way.
And without a moments pause, my knees are back on the ground.
The sounds have stopped. The notion is frozen.
It takes every muscle in me to look up to what I already know to be.

The lake gives way.
And it spoke from depths of what I ran from.
There you lay.

And with you lay every ounce of my childhood.
And with you lay every hope I never had.

The lake gave way.
And with the action,
There you laid, with every passing moment I wished to have back.

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