Alone in my Own Camp

I want someone singing
someone singing of you
to reach into my heart and sing its pain
I want someone in the same kingdom
I want a fellow subject
to sing
to sing my pain.

Perhaps if I was better off
if I had been more obedient
then perhaps
perhaps I could feel what I hear
from them now.

But you know I can’t.

Speak to my heart oh Lord
and it will be as you speak.

It’s a long process (with the ultimate goal of being Free)…
