Recycling

and in this record
that plays
againand
againandagain
in my head
these events unfold:

looking up i can see into eternity, far into the air
blue upon blue reaches my eyes, glowing
something i’d always longed to see-never knowing
but i choose shackles to love, rejecting glory you would share

time passes: again i stand accepted(!) at the foot of divine stairs
light plays off of surfaces, breathes life into everything
angels stand around and watch, waiting again to sing
it’s perfect, awesome, and so wonderfully unfair.

(oh hear my cries “abba abba” for forgiveness in the rhyme
of this song, graciously accepted each and every time)

Dang, that was written five years ago, so I guess that qualifies as an “in other(s’) words” entry. (If you didn’t get the last couplet, it refers to the rhyme scheme “abba, abba, cc”; haha so clever young Justin.)
