In-spire – Promote Yourself



The ancient church spire

Absorbs the sorry scene

It sees the approaching fire

And yet it stands serene


Not keen to yield to natures call

As mighty flames lick, forge on

It will stand majestic and tall

Until the last hope is gone


The spire knows, is assured

That if it’s frame is set ablaze

There will be a spire no more

A short farewell, its final phase


Where church and spire once stood

Embers of faith glow in the rubble

Faith is questioned, misunderstood

But people want to help in times of trouble


The spire saw faith move mountains

It knew faith could rebuild, nurture, thrive

If you look to the example of the spire

See past now, that you can revive, survive


Be sure that faith lingers at a heart’s gate

Stand tall, serene, witness, breathe

You can withstand the whims of fate

You are not scattered ashes and you believe.
