Rhyme

Individuality

I like to think
That I’m completely free
Original
And
Unique
Just being me
But it’s easy to see
How much I’ll always be
Like my dear friends and family
Through God’s grace
Their influence on me is deep
And through His mercy
It’s a beautiful thing
Individuality and community
Were made to meet
And I don’t have to be
Just little me

free verse

Remix

Life is a remix
We repeat each other a lot
And sometimes we feel
That we’ve discovered
Something new
Only to find 
That it’s been there all along
And as much as life
Seems to change
It remains the same
Sunrise
Sunset
Rhythm and rhyme
They’ve been used a million times
The same chord progressions
The same Bible verses
Humming in our hearts
Challenging our minds
Ideas return
They don’t go away
And what one generation
Forsook
Another embrace
It’s a comforting circle
It’s familiar
And safe
When the remix of life
Makes us all the same
Desperate for our Maker
Beyond time and space
