Original Song – Free


I wrote this song recently, decided to title it Free. I am still looking for a singer who will add melody to it and use it to bless humanity. If you have concrete ideas, please send an email.

This is the summary of my life, I have a very graphic imagination and as such, ghosts from my past still come to haunt me and I struggled for years because I would be caught in the snare every single time. But when I surrendered to His Love, I have the strength to withstand and say no. Moreover, He took away the craving for sin and it became much easier to withstand the fiery darts in my mind. The renewal process of the mind is not an easy journey, since I didn’t put the junks in my mind in one day, it will take much more time to get rid of the junk.

I’ve got flashbacks
Seeing faces I thought I’d escaped from
Why this lingering?
Like a stalking shadow
Can I ever be free?
In the deepest part of memory bank
In the farthest part of memory lane
There all the pain I kept
But like the smoke in life
It found a way back to haunt me
Can I ever be free?
Searching far and wide
For quick-fixes to these ghosts
But realized I have been set free
I just didn’t know it
I gave up my searching
And accepted His Love
Now I’m free (till fade)
