Take it Further: “Fight Song” by Ross Wilbanks

Look and hear Lord, lighten my eyes.
Stuck in awful known repetition.
At a fool’s pace, stuck on the cries
After the worst I can remember.

Speaking, pleading, bring back the power
Of a moment’s encounter with others.
No one left listening, varied by hours
Of answers undone, swift and clever.

Ring the dim bell. This decrepit hotel
Casts my enemies same in back-and-forth phrases.
One day when everyone left. And I overslept.
I saw every trap door that leads to the dawn.
Upside down and lead to the dawn. I heard:

Abiding and changeless
Laughing at a soul’s defense
Of eternity in a day.

Look and hear Lord, lighten my eyes.
Held still in your unknown repetition.


We’d love to hear from you. Please share with us below your thoughts and insight. We would love to see Take it Further be a place where as a community we dialog, and together we all take the conversation further.
