"I Can Move Mountains"


For I Can See

Where the horizons began

An invitingly beautiful crescendo to a glowing sunset

The Golden Ticket

A blazing trail leading to sunset

An Invitation to the Winner’s Circle

The Pinnacle

Opening my eyes to unimaginable landscapes

A privilege to enjoy

Granted to those Who Know Patience

An Understanding that a Beginning has no End

Always mountains to climb

Neverending

A coup d'etat

The Desecration of the Messenger from Above

Giving birth to a  the Ultimate Sacrifice

A Divine Intervention

The King of Calvary

Leaving it ALL on the Battlefield 

For me

The Sacrificial Lamb

The Savior

A Waymaker

From the past, to the present, to the future

I am the Seed

Roooted from Eden to Armageddon

Descending from a rotten Fruit

Cursed

Yet, Each day when theSon rises

I am made NEW

The wind blows 

Although no energy is present

Lifting my sails

For As He Rises

 So, I Rise

Spreading the Seed

Eternally

Surviving from His Last Breath

Blessing my Ascension

Because of Him

I'm a Heiress

To Eternity

Yet at a price

Watch me, 

Sprout 

Reaching for the Son

Who Illuminates my path
