Although work seems not to come
I can still fill up my space
By using my understanding
With what God hath given me, grace.
I can watch and listen well
To the sounds of the awards
See the hearts that bare their souls
You can see I am not bored.
I don’t have to be front and center
I don’t have to hear your voice
I can see in the reactions
Stand with you and rejoice.
For all those who are suffering
From things such as MSA
For all those dressed in glitter
I know God sees your face.
For you may feel alone
When your name has not been called
When you cry out to the heavens
You feel shoved against the wall.
I am nothing more than you
And perhaps you don’t know my name
But I know our paths have crossed
Making me proud we breathe this space.
So whether you are dressed in glamour
Or sitting home in tears
God has placed you in this moment
So you may know your friends are near.
