I Did Not

I did not
Fall
Away

I was shot
From a rocket
Away from
Everything
I knew


And I survived
And rose up
And realized

Where I came from
Was not a place
I could
Return to

I did not
Leave
Home

My house
Burned to ash
Around me
Requiring that
I make
My home
Elsewhere

I did not
Walk away
From God

Though for a time
If God was there
God wasn’t
Findable

Shot far away
Home burned to ash
God not found

You don’t
Journey back
From that

You journey forward

You don’t
Rebuild
With old plans

You build new

You don’t
Set limits
On where
God is found

You set your gaze wider

So I journey forward
And I build new
And I gaze wider

Not because
I fell away
Or walked away

But because
This was
The only
Way
