A New List

Verse 1:
Making a list
‘Cause that’s what I do
Replaying the pain
That you put me through

Hurts and heartbreak
My memory recalls
A marriage in trouble
Lives within these walls

Chorus:
But everyone fails
And everyone hurts
Our struggles continue
Under the curse

I need to let go
And focus on good
Remember to love
And forgive as I should

Verse 2:
So into the shredder
I let go of the list
And choose to choose better
Noble thoughts are my quest

A heart that is trying
To serve and submit
Yearning to follow God’s Word
All of it

Chorus:
For everyone fails
And everyone hurts
Our struggles continue
Under the curse

I need to let go
And focus on good
Remember to love
And forgive as I should

Verse 3:
A new list to brag on
Of one to be proud
Listing your praiseworthy traits
Long and loud

Forgetting the old
And looking for new
Ways to show that I love you
I do!

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
