A song for God, inspired by "A Question" by Robert Frost

I wonder if the sky has fallen down
Right upon my lap as I stare out at this town
Because they’re just so bright that I could see
Them as if they were ‘this’ close to me
I feel like I’m talking to God
When I’m alone in the dark
Because his light is just so undeniable
I know he thinks that I am unreliable

[choral progression]

Whenever I talk to him
His love is not so dim
And I can really feel it
I know how real it is

[chorus]

He says, Look me in the stars and tell me a story
Your life is hard but it’s rarely boring
I didn’t mean for it to be more than it’s worth
It’s just enough to pay for your time on Earth
Now here’s your rebirth

Maybe sometimes we’re just too blinded by the son
To realize that he is the one
Day after day we’re tested
God damned the world if we rested
But isn’t that more like love than anything?
Doesn’t that sound more like love than anything?

[chorus]

Look me in the stars
Whether your near or far
And tell me truly, men of Earth
Of all the soul and body’s scars
When Jupiter aligns with Mars
Were they not too much to pay for birth?

She once paid for drugs using a check. It bounced. Javier was not pleased.

    Nicely done Jay, of course I expect no less from you. My fav was the two opening lines, “I wonder if the sky has fallen down, Right upon my lap as I stare out at this town.” I believe the point being conveyed is that you can see everything from a viewpoint higher than your normal perception. Either it’s all taken a great descent or your ascending.
