like little promises accumulating over the years,
piling into great mounds of failed commitment.

Calling me further into the darkness
Where the face of my Savior is shrouded

Femininity is a gift
Straight from the Lord
Once turned wrong
Now restored

The cross gives my hair
A new way to shine
The cross gives my back
A new and flexible spine
The cross gives my body
A new way to be preserved
The cross gives femininity
As a way to praise the Lord

where burn flames hottest.
