Chasing after Eternity

You began as dust –

Ashes swirling on cracked pavement,

But you have been lifted up

To live among the stars;

Earthly chains can’t hold you anymore,

You look for meaning in faces,

And songs on the radio,

Searching for belonging,

But you’ll never find it here.

Just wait, there are beautiful things

Up ahead:

Glorious light and holy ground.

You belong to Heaven,

Not this universe.

This life is but a shadow,

A transient existence;

These years will disappear,

But don’t look back,

Don’t give up,

Because you chase after eternity!
