Letter From the Father
Devin Mitchell Durbin
“I know you feel so small
you say, but in my eyes
I see a giant. I see a man.
Don’t lock yourself away
there’s so much left to see.
Don’t let the serpent around your neck.
You’ll hang yourself if he gets too far.
It’s easy to see what’s here and now,
But your emotions are nothing to fear
I hear it and see it in your eyes, ‘How?’ How do I love you?
You took the step, made the jump
You said you ran, but you knew one thing
I’d catch you.
No matter what you did I am here.
No matter what you said I am here.
No matter who you think you are.
No matter cuts, the bruises, self-inflicted shame.
I see a giant in your soul!
I see a future you can’t see!
All you know is the here and now,
You see the reaping of the sin you sowed.
Don’t look here, I’ve made you knew.
Once and for all, the weak will be made giants.
Don’t lock yourself away –
Someone is watching.
You are more important than you ever
Thought you were.
