The Fog

Darkness hung on the phantom light
Through the mystery of the impenetrable cloud
Every movement that cannot be seen
Exaggerated into ghosts graves and ghouls
Groaning into phantom memories
Of yesterday and of what might have been
Twisting our guilt in remembered scenes
Our today locked with an unknown key
That leaves liberty languishing longingly
And the fog of tomorrow we cannot see
Threatening our purpose with fears of what MAY be
Can all be set aside through
The Christ who was and is and always will be

Alternatively, you can visit the Media Links page and see a short visit done by BBC Radio Scotland for an interview I did there.
