Warp Zones

For the first time, I’m flying in to Oklahoma
And today someone wondered if I’ll move back.
Old homes carry, in unique ways, an enticement
A true statement buried, a barely flickering light
I am still framing out a new home for myself
with the concrete, brick and wood of
new friends, new work, new fears, new hopes;
yet the arm of past homes taps the opposite shoulder.
I eventually learned that you find the answer
when you look the other direction.
I will always be from Oklahoma,
and the princess is always in another castle.

I talk out my realizations
and today I found myself
with little fear, for I have
been there and back, and
still breathe, still wonder
alive and well, in spite of
pains that had happened
that year of broken glass
but the Lord swept away
the shatters, and I know
that my Redeemer lives
and I can face anything
(even a tropical storm)
because there was a day
when all of life felt futile
in the rear view mirrors
things not as big as they
might appear; so rejoice
for the end is very far away
yet the kingdom is at hand
And the Lord still reigns
over every inch of the land.
