Out of a discerning mind
A single word that shakes my bones
My tongue is speechless, my body bows
My soul, alit, is still as a tree
To hear those tones
For eternity

God bless,

Do things that matter matter at all?
Compared with the First, just pale and pall
Deaf and mute to my furtive call
Yet yelling to wreck my path and stall

O! That I might look at the cross
O! That I might walk down His road
For eternity, eternity and my focus never at loss
O! that I might help with His load
For eternity, eternity list'ning to His heart
And never ever to part

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Is It a Name?

Is it a name that gives a voice
To hopes and dreams and choice?
Is it a wonder in the sky
That lights the pathway nigh?

God bless,

Hotel of Babel

I entered a lobby, bright sparkles abound
And asked the attendant where hope could be found
'Not here' he said and pointed to a door
'Those stairs will take you to where hope was before'
So up to the first floor, and I asked a maid
If hope in which room hope had stayed
'Hope wasn't here, maybe another floor?'
Up and up I went, and searched more and more
On to the tenth, the hundredth, and going
My fervor and zeal with no signs of slowing
Yet though I sought in every room under every table
I could not find hope in the Hotel of Babel

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
