Lord, Send Your Holy Spirit  

There's a wall in my head as thick and old
as a big red oak tree.
It cast shadows right thru who I am
and what I once thought I'd be
It looms there in the darkness
that itself has created
And as I often do
while I try to get thru
I'll stumble to and fro
stubbing my toe
Just trying to make it free
I'll fall and scrape my knee
Yes, this wall has no thought or feeling
and yet I stand there reeling
Screaming curses acutely
i berate it
Somewhere I heard it said
in a book or magazine I read
Whatever you may consider
as a fault, blemish or spot
Just don't be cast down over it
because they say that it's not
That you should accentuate it
as if an asset of yours it be
I've found it true of some things
but of this wall that behaves like a tree
I'm just not sure how to frame it,
Or if I should even claim it,
Or even what to name it.
I do tho, feel as if I could blame it,
For this darkness I stumble about in
Thru it all my fears and doubts begin
They linger and the darkness gives them life
This brings about sorrow and strife
I cry out to my Father in heaven
to send His Holy Spirit
To give me comfort
and show me love
Mend me now
so that I can hear it
Knock down this barrier so that
I no longer fear it
Shine bright your light
and let me near it
To warm my bones, and restore my sight
To be my home, to be my might-
Once again
