The Change-Maker


The woman on the train

Doesn’t know your name
But she knows your game
She sees the lines on your face
And the hair out of place
She holds your gaze
But you look away
She smiles

But you can’t bear the joy
The eyes divert
Your heart is too hurt

Too wounded to brave
A simple ‘hey’

Too bruised to say
‘Have a nice day’

You distrust her, 
Don’t you?

You’re over humanity’s game
You think she is the same
That she’ll exploit your pain

But no

She is clothed in grace

She lives for another Name
She seeks life and light
She’ll love you despite

Your game shames
Push it away

What if you embrace
c h a n g e

What is change?
Wait.

Think again
Wrong question

Who can change?

Ah.
Who

The Change-Maker
The Maker

Not a heart-breaker
But a life-saver

Ah.
What if
You caved

What if you say,
A simple ‘hey’

To the One who knows your name

See this woman on the train
Wonders after your heart

She holds the key
An answer to your need
To your searching

What if you received
The key to life

What if you believed
The Light

Do you see?
Do you want to see?
Are you free?

Or are you 
h i d i n g

How to flee
The dark

How to free
The heart

Oh.
The key
J E S U S
Deep release
He holds
The keys.
The way 
To eternity
