Won’t Always

It won’t always be like this
Not forever

To have to worry about
Or be in fear or doubt
Of when my next meal be
Or whether they deposited my salary
And I can cease
To look at my wallet so brokenly

It won’t always be like this
Not forever

Where I don’t want to be
Alone or lonely
So I keep myself occupied
Jumping from one to the next deadly tie
Calling it a fling or thing on the side
Knowing I let in more parasites
But its better than facing the reflection inside

It won’t always be like this
Not forever

Where I have to be the strong one
In order for things to be done
Where everyone gets to vent and deal
But I have to zip it up and seal
Someone must be the man of steel

It won’t always be like this
Not forever

Where my eyes may have to be plucked out
At risk of eternity missing out
Because the status was all about
“letting the girls out”
And pucker her lips in a pout
Where I have to worry about
The temptation around the corner
Or the feel to always warn her
“You are already beautiful my daughter”
And she won’t seek the wrong attention to support her

It won’t always be like this
Not forever

Where we say good-bye
Not knowing it really is the last time
Where the next breath is uncertain
And we don’t know when the final curtain
Will draw on a life and we are left hurting

It won’t always be like this
Not forever

Where one stands over another
Looking down proudly on a brother
As his life is smothered
Or the suffering in sickness
To this Earth’s curse a witness
Lay where they once fought, now hopeless

It won’t always be like this
Not forever

No not forever
For one day we will study war
No more
For
It is all war
From marriage
To the armed savage
It’s not always against flesh and blood
Some of the worst enemies can’t be fought with a gun

For one day we will study war
No more
Our good byes
Will turn to “It’s been a while”s
As we see familiar smiles
No more tears in our eyes
Looking refreshed and blessed
As they are restored and well rested
Forgotten are the trials with which we were tested

For one day we will study war
No more
And that day is not far away
For in His resurrection is our hope and stay
A home in eternity
Is not just something He did say
He stepped over death “Excuse Me”
To go ahead and prepare a place
Where there is one eternal day

For one day we will study war
No more
The lamb will lie next to the lion
And death will never touch Mount Zion
