No Direction

by Nick Jaina

oh, there's no direction in our lives
and so we keep a line tethered to the will of Jesus Christ
some would say that he is on the rich man's parapet
but my eyes are as good as anyone's and I haven't seen him yet
so we keep a light undimmed by all the awkwardness and pain
and I steal a glance at your body as we stumble through the rain
