Music: Kev O Malley ft. Joel Grainger - Teardrop


Explain Faith

Emerge from the thickest of waters
breathing my first breath of fresh
cool air

Wings unfolded
shaking and shivering in the cool wind
and from disuse

To breathe regularly this fresh air

To fly high above where I used to run

To leave my tears burned away upon this fire
smoldering within my breast

How to explain all this

to someone that has not breathed
leapt into flight
or had the breath of those Words ignite within their heart

I know not where to begin
