Know Your Name

In your heart
you know you’re ready
but the world doesn’t
know your name

so you forever search and pray
for some angel
that will find something special in your muse,
appreciate the miles walked in your shoes
and just be gracious
enough to
hold open the door

you feel time growing shorter
with each sweep of the hands
shoo those troubles of the world
before they nest in the corners
of your mind

In your heart
you know you’re ready
but the world doesn’t
know your name

a small voice says, don’t cry
we must crawl and stumble
before we leap and fly

you chuckle under your
breath in frustration
but your soul is resolute
you couldn’t give up if you tried
and oh have you’ve tried

now you have grown into faith,
into your name
and it fits. It’s destiny,
you’ll never quit
now the world will
know your name.
