Caught in the pull
of emotion new and strong
I drink deeply
of the fount you offer
Remains of my fear
lay at our feet
in a tangle of cotton
From you, I knew kindness
for you, I learned courage
And now I know
the thirst that grows
with every drink of need
This path to your fount
may lead to Heaven
or Hell… I care not
All paths begin and end
in you
