Contrast and Understanding

  “Sometimes it takes a good fall to really know where you stand”

                                                                      ~ Hayley Williams


~Contrast and Understanding~
I fall down and then I fall down even deeper.
Slanted and deceptive, a snake creeping and slithering to the end.
I fall down and fall again.
Covered by the crowd and what they believe is true.
They tell me jump to the left.
But I feel like jumping to the right.
I fall down and then I fall down even deeper.
Ignoring the righteous and hurting the lamb.
I fall down and fall again.
Engulfed by the waves and hurling towards the deep.
They tell me to take the bait.
But I feel like taking my crown.
Contrast and understanding.
Black and white.
Slipping to the left, slipping to the right.
I fall down and the take my crown.
As I drown a hand comes.
As I am covered a hand reaches.
Why is it that sometimes I do not grasp on?
I fall down and then I fall even deeper.
If I grab the savior I will rise back up.
But then so many times I fall down and fall again.
