A Song Called Please

Silent nights, and sorrow filled days

As desperate cries for help go unanswered

The longing soul begins to question worth


Of life spent on earth


As world around falls away

And friends are nowhere to be found

Emptiness fills the mind, as soul contemplates


The ending of it all


And yet, amidst the darkness of

A lonely and a hurting mind

There still remains, a Light, a Love, much greater than


Anything the longing heart could want


As the soul begins to move

To bring an end to sorrowful days

A song is ringing, a cry is screaming


Out from Heaven’s gates


Stop! Please!

The cry rings out to shattered heart

But lo, it does not listen


She cannot hear the longing cry


For darkness has been let in, and

Is silencing any voice of Hope and

Is whispering its lies as


Broken heart begins to believe them


Again with fury and with passion cries

That Voice from Heaven once more

Please, please! Look to Me!


There still is hope, there still is purpose and

One who loves you more than world

I, who gave myself for you!


The shaking figure ceases but a moment

For a moment grazed by feeling that

She is not alone


Lies again, out of anger whisper and

Shout its poison once again, for fear that girl may

In fact believe this truth ringing from Heaven’s skies


Again she falls, and believes the darkness’ songs

As she again begins her shaky task of

Readying to make her end



This time, with Voice like thunder cries

The desperate Lover from on High


Bidding her to see Him standing beside her


This time, she drops her weapon and

Turns to see who called her

As she, for a moment, meets His gaze


A tsunami of love engulfs her


She begins to walk towards Him

Feeling chains fall away

As desperate enemy claws and grabs at scars and mind


Begging her to finish the task


She fights the thoughts a moment longer

Walking closer to the Light

She sees, only a brief flicker but


Now has something to hold on to


No, no!

The enemy screams

A hope has been born inside her and


It cannot be easily quenched!


More, more!

He rallies the demons around him as

They make one last stand, to see her dead


And forever held in chains

The Light, too sees assembling force and yet

Makes no effort to assemble more

For He, in Himself, is enough


And has already defeated them


Yet now, the battle is

In the hands of shaking girl

Who must choose to run to life and Light or


Fall forever into darkness


Enemy begins his attack, whispering lies of despair and

Trying to quench the small hope inside

To see her fall to death


She turns, guided by her fear and sorrow and

This overwhelming feeling of despair,

Brought on by hellish captors and


She whispers to herself “I am too far gone now for any hope.”


Suddenly, she picks up weapon and

Lays finger gently on the trigger as

She readies for her final moment


She closes her eyes, shaking with gun to head

Head filled with thoughts, to get it over and

End this war of mind


Once and for all


Yet, something inside her,

That brilliant Hope, forces her eyes

To open for but a moment


In front of her, met eye to eye

Only inches from her face, is Figure, is Light

Standing right before her


In His eyes, what was seen, cannot be fully described

Only what was whispered through holy lips, in simplest syntax

That rocked her shattered world to break into Light




Suddenly her eyes grew heavy as

She fell to knees and wept with voice that

Can never be conveyed


She shook violently as

Arms of Love engulfed her and

Surrounded her, with fantastic Light


As He welcomed her home


The arms of Love, had always been opened

Outstretched towards her, from Calvary and Heaven

Belonging to a Loving Savior who


Gave Himself for her


But life and struggle had

Blinded her to His call

Till that night, when darkness tried


Once and for all to rob her from, Him who died for her


It was in that darkest place

When gun was fully loaded that

For the first time, she saw this Savior


Looking out at her


Calling her to Himself,

To freedom and to Life

Away from brutal captors who


Had left her empty and without hope


So now, this story

I cannot tell the end

But what happened, that night


As girl sat wrapped in loving arms, a perfect happy mess


Changed her, in ways, she never will forget

And now pushes her on, through whatever life may bring

For she knows, at darkest and


At moment before death


When blackness around is too heavy and

Hellish voices whisper lies

Edging on to death


She found, that night

That this Light, is not passive

It is not uncaring for her soul


For He came, and met her where she was

That night on kitchen floor

And stopped the flight, of bullet and


Gave her life, and hope, forevermore


And showed Himself, to that desperate soul

In need of touch and encounter from

This Loving and Living Savior


Who bears the glorious Name,

The Holy and the perfect name

Of that Savior, Jesus Christ


Who welcomed her home that night

With a simple, loving, desperate and passionate song

Simply titled please~

    So devastating true in the feeling that there is no way, no hope, with the only answer being oblivion. You shine a light where few dare go…. thank you!
