I’m In The Shadow

Here is my wall

It covers my heart

It protects me from pain

Or so I imagine

I’m in the shadow

 

Here is my shell

It covers my eyes

It protects me from anger

Or so I believe

I’m in the shadow

 

Here is my barrier

It covers my ears

It protects me from fear

Or so I declare

I’m in the shadow

 

Here is my shield

It covers my hands

It protects me from violence

Or so I’ve conceived

I’m in the shadow

 

Here is my smile

It covers my face

It protects me from truth

Or so I contemplate

I’m in the shadow

 

Here is His joy

It covers my mind

It protects me from lies

This I know

I’m in His Shadow

 

Here is His kindness

It covers my hands

It protects me from malice

This I know

I’m in His shadow

 

Here is His peace

It covers my ears

It protects me from the unknown

This I know

I’m in His shadow
