Visit a World Like Ours by Faniyi Oluwatomiwa Elijah

Visit a World Like Ours by Faniyi Oluwatomiwa Elijah
 
If you must avoid knowing
The taste of pain and guilt
How fast a stray bullet runs
And the depth of a broken heart
Visit a world like ours, where our altars keep burning.

If you desire to experience
What deep intimacy really is
How far you can build exquisite friendship
With the red rose, the love, the flame
Visit a world like ours, where our altars keep burning.

If you must repair a broken altar
Such that the part of your hard heart
Meet in the frame to praise His name
If you must hold your peace in the midst of the storm
Visit a world like ours, where our altars keep burning.
 
A heart alone is such a stone
That made this place a home
A place of encounter, a holy ground
If your troubled soul is searching for rest
Visit a world like ours, where our altars keep burning.

If you must taste the feeling of a survivor
To escape life uncertainties
And become a terror to darkness
If you must light your world
Visit a world like ours, where our altars keep burning.

I will wear my body like a crown
And build an altar in my heart
And adore it with the sweetest ornament of royalty
So that when I’m shown the kitchen to rule
I’ll show them the Kingdom in His name.
