You can’t hide forever from the world ~
It will come knocking at your door.
As the sunrays stream through the trees,
God will come looking and implore ~
By touching your heart and your soul,
God will help you swim back to the shore.

So come out of your shell ! Wake up, dear heart !
Stride out on the sunbeams back to Earth.
Speak of forgiveness from your heart.
Give love a new chance for rebirth ~
Let angels come home to your side
To carry you forward, to prove your worth.

Fly forward from out of your shell,
Away from the worry and fear.
Climb up that ladder from the well
Of the dark prison of yesteryear.
Walk out, walk tall,
Hold your head high
And know that you have nothing to fear.

Marianne Griffin ~ March 2014
