Beautiful Seed

From Corrinne's Blog:

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter"
Martin Luther King, Jr.

This past Monday the 21st of January,
we celebrated the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
He dared to stand up for the truth and was assassinated
because of it. Truly, he gave witness to his beliefs
that all Men should live in brotherly love, regardless
of race, language or religion.

He is an inspiring figure to me. His life, a shining
example of how one man can make a difference.
So often, we forget how important our lives are.
How we all have the potential to make a difference
with everything we do, every decision we make,
no matter how small or insignificant we might think
it is.


I can fill the darkness with just one flash of light
Break the the silence with just one word
Warm the fire-started revolution
One that can save the world

On the steps of Washington sprinkled like confetti
Thousands of people sing "We shall overcome"
The preacher shouts: "Let freedom ring"
He gave his life for what he believed

You can be a witness You can be a prophet
You can make the whole world believe
Break the strongest fortress Change the way the world thinks
You can build a bridge where foes can meet
Hope for the future
Shout it, don't whisper dreams are what make them to be
There is hope in every heartbeat
Tiny as it seems
You're a beautiful seed

She's a pastor's daughter
She's only 16
But her heart and her belly are breaking at the seams
Her boyfriend blames her
He want to pay for the doctor to wash it away

As she lays in the hospital
A Christmas choir is singing
About a child in a manger fragile and small "Unto us is born a Savior"
She looks at her baby and cries as she sings him a lullaby


Every hope, every prayer lies in the heart of a seed that flowers
Intertwined all across the land
We're all seeds in the maker's hand
