It’s not a joke

By Clayton Davis

It’s Here
It’s There
It’s Everywhere
When I close my eyes
All I can see is despair

It’s in their faces
It’s in their stride
Just making it through the day
Helps them survive on their pride

Another drink, another toke
All their pain is not a joke

When I look in the mirror, what do I see
But by the grace of God, there goes thee
Because of God’s love, I am free
For He sent Jesus to die for me

He took my infirmities, my guilt, and my shame
And wiped them from His sight
With unmerited love, mercy and grace
I now live a life worth living
A life that is in His light
