It Has Always Been the Woods

I wrote this after Michelle, Athena, and I had returned from our camping trip to Falls Lake. The woods and most importantly the trees within the woods have always resonated with and spoken to my soul.

It has always been the woods,

          Where solace lives.

It has always been the woods,

          Where my soul rests.

It has always been the woods,

          Where peace endures.

It has always been the woods,

          I ran to first

          To hide ‘neath the trees.

It has always been the woods,

          I found escape

          From grief and rage

          From hurtful words.

It has always been the woods,

          That unites us

          Reminding all

          Of God’s unbound

          Love and glory.

It has always been the woods.
