Beauty From Ashes

Living in our perfect bubbles

In ignorant bliss

Treating death like it’s

Some sort of hit or miss


Floating aimlessly around

Until death comes knocking

Face to face with harsh reality

Our bubbles are popping


But are we not earthen vessels

That God shapes and molds

People who can now give comfort

To others who need a hand to hold


Earthly life fades

It’s gone in the blink of an eye

A faltering heartbeat

One last goodbye


And though times are tough

And our hope downward crashes

God will bring forth beauty

Out of the ashes
