In my fear you tell me to rest
For you’ve called my feet to this place
Surrounded by the dark, I trust your process
Even when I can no longer see your face
Another storm rumbles, shaking the earth
As I remain blind from lack of light
Here I stay low – stay connected
Finding your presence when I don’t have sight
Pressure increases until something breaks within me-
A bright flash of lightning streaks across the air
In the moment of a gasping breath, I realize
Who I am, and why you’ve called me here
Breaking forth in a thunderous roar
Free from the shell surrounding me
My sight is restored as I finally see
Shining from the light of my full identity
Ceasing the storm, I rise once more
Thankful for it all, with eyes lifted high
Now hearing you call to me once again-
And in one leap, I take off to the sky.
