Darkness

i look at the looks of my fellow men towards even the children of “another” race
as though there was some kind of otherness that could be deemed less before God’s face
as though there was some kind of line defining a competition for His embrace
and the darkness is hard to see through the darkness is hard to see through

i look at the colors of sunlight shining through the prism of falling rain
and i try to remember so i can relate when i didn’t know was a trick of the brain
to see separation of the colors as a true form in the distance opposite the sun
and it’s hard not to come undone yeah it’s hard not to come undone
and the darkness is hard to see through the darkness is hard to see through

i cringe from the rallying cries of us versus them screaming wild anger
and i listen to the desperate voices of the mute and the unwilling idle begging from strangers
and i look at the nickel bags empty on the side of the road thinkin what mouths do they feed
and i wonder who’s hungry tonight and hungry for justice for those who bleed
and it’s hard not to come undone yeah it’s hard not to come undone
and darkness is hard to see through the darkness is hard to see through

so i look towards the clouds above, and i stretch my heart towards the heavens
and i look for the sliver bright linings, and i think of the nature of leaven
and i close my eyes and i speak His name and i pray for freedom for those stuck in the games
and i try not to feel ashamed ashamed when the tears well up like rain unconstrained
and somewhere there sounds a stupendous thunder and the wrath of the heavens is now untamed

and i wonder who’s hungry tonight and hungry for justice for those who bleed
yet i’m grateful pain can lead to bliss and i know love’s only shown by deeds
and it’s hard not to come undone it’s hard not to come undone
but i know all the colors shine from one sun they all shine from just one sun
and knowing some day we may see You, that someday we all may see You
the darkness don’t seem as hard, not quite as hard to see through
