The Secret to Life

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

We watch movies on the silver screen
And oh the people we steal their scene
Because we think they know what it’s like
To feel alive
Everyone’s dead around us now
Turn on the TV to feel somehow
Because with that fame, they must know what it’s like
To thrive

But with the silence
I feel the violence
Of an enemy
Trying to make us forget
That with the stillness
And with our wholeness
And by His strength
We can uncover the Secret
To being alive

We watch others to find our role
And the emptiness of a God-sized hole
We think we can cover up
The leak
But if everyone just looked around
It wouldn’t take long ’til it was found
That everyone around us has lost the Strength
That makes us weak

Our busyness
May cover up the emptiness
For a little while
But with the smile
Of a little child
You’ll find the vile
In a world
Trying to poison our souls
And you’ll find we’ve swallowed it whole
When you look at our goals

But with the silence
We can fight back with violence
An enemy
Trying to make us forget
That with our stillness
And with our wholeness
And by His strength
We can find the Secret
To a life
That’s lived alive
