outside

standing on the outside
    nose pressed to the glass
looking at the laughter
    regretting things that passed

life is being lived there
    i’m just marking time
waiting for the orders
    that would put me back in line

wondering if i’ll ever be
    the who i need to be
to make a difference in this world
    to follow all my dreams

i can’t be the exemption
    to Love and Joy and Peace
and so i trust Whom i can’t see
    to meet my deepest needs

by anna lenardson

 Psalm 138:8 The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
       your love, O LORD, endures forever—
       do not abandon the works of your hands.
