I’m Pushing

By: Woodrow Odom Lucas

I’m pushing into shadow bringing light,

Trapped in a prison of my own misgiving,

I am living,

But every morning I wake up tired,

Because I am pushing,

Into a kingdom that awaits me,

Into a harmony that awaits my family,

Into a compassion that awaits my society,

I am pushing into shadow bringing light

Fighting with weapons of unconditional love,

Holding to the promise that by his stripes we are healed,

I’m pushing,

I’m tired,

But I will win,

For there is a man who holds the victory in his hand,

And he gives it to me freely,

I’m pushing,

And I will win,

Thank God!!
