What Now?


I deleted your songs today

didnt want to, had to

couldnt listen to you anymore

without thinking

of what you were doing

what you had done

how youd been led astray

and stayed astray

ignoring the power of God

belittling Him in the face of your sin


I too struggle, daily, with sin

the solution is not so much

giving in as keeping on

a life-long fight against temptation

does not legitimize it

but shows the need for grace


you words, however true, before

have been perverted

and I cant enjoy anymore

the words of one who gave up hope



After learning of RBs coming out,

and the apparent joy he now feels.


How awful to give up on God,

and say that He is smaller than our sin.


How sad to give up hope in He

who promised all our ills to heal.


What Now?
