One Name

Suffering and sacrifice,
Deeply rooted scars,
PTSD, the anger inside of me.
Retreat and defeat,
Imprisoned behind my own bars.

I chased happiness but it all felt the same,
Questioning my own worth, Until I felt called to serve.
No peace to be found,
Until I chose a path that's the same,
A path still with suffering,
But for just one name.

One name that suffered,
for you and for me,
A name that laid down His own life,
So that I may be set free.

Now I rejoice in my pain,
For now I have peace,
Because I suffer,
for just one name.

I no longer retreat in defeat,
Fearing deaths sting.
For I serve a mighty Warrior,
The one true KING.
