Why are we here,
what’s it about?
Is there real meaning
or just reams of pure doubt?

Everything seems random,
we’re so out of touch
we want to be someone
we want it so much.

Off to work in the morning,
home by six;
frozen dinners and reruns,
no politics.

Yard work on the weekends,
date night at eight,
a movie and dinner,
home early, not late.

The older we get
we don’t venture out,
it’s way too much trouble,
simply pretend we’re devout.

Is there more to it,
are we living the dream?
Is the carousel slowing,
is this all it seems?

Somehow you’ve missed it,
it’s not what you planned,
you’re running the treadmill
and life is a scam.

There must be an answer,
there just has to be?
You’ll pursue it tomorrow
you’ll find it and see.

The sun rising and setting,
the moon and stars way up there,
these things don’t just happen
there’s a designer somewhere.

You know there’s more to it,
Or perhaps it’s a Who,
keep looking you’ll find ’em
do great questions come true?

The first steps the hardest,
your fear overcome,
if you cry out the question,
the answer will come,

The answer’s a person named Jesus the Christ
but He’s not just a man, He’s God in the flesh
only He can transform us and make us brand new!

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
