Redemption Train

For Jesse

The redemption train is already waiting
Waiting for you to take that walk through the rain
There's so many roads but there’s only one station
Where all of us pray you will find the way

The redemption train is forever boarding
With sinners forgiven who wash themselves clean
They fall down to their knees for the power and glory
They’re worthy enough for the grace they have seen

The redemption train has one destination
The place we are waiting with love in our eyes
To share all your tears and sing your salvation
The love of the Lord is just you in disguise

The redemption train is already waiting
Waiting for you to walk through the rain
So many roads but there’s only one station
Where all of us pray that you’ll find your way

I really enjoy your diction, your flow so to speak, is otherworldly in many ways, as you create this fine tapestry of poetic ingenuity with a raw kind of old-time feel...

this reminds me of a quote from the film "Inception"

"You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter. How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?"

By the way, thank you for your comment on my recent post about Rumi, I am excited to be working with a fascinating individual on such a project, as I have with you on the art manifesto, much gratitude for your encouragement as always...be well!
