Pleased to share my song “Metaphors of a Restless Heart”. It was first crafted as a poem and later on turned to a song. Poetry in music and music in poetry and some metaphors in between. The wonder of these three together speaks so well to a soul. See lyric video below and let me know what you think. See links at bottom to buy music.
I’m a ship lost at sea
Blown by the wind aimlessly
By the racing waves and tides
I’m worn and wry
No shore in sight
No place to hide
I’m a house broken down
My cracks are deep
From roof to ground
I’m wishing for a chance
To fix my messy leaks
I’m hurting much
And yet I’m getting numb
I need Jesus, I need Jesus
I need Jesus, oh Jesus
I’m a forgotten truck
Stuck in a rut
None alive but stains and dust
Stifled by these grimes and stubborn rust
On busted wheels
Oh, I’m crippled still
I’m a paper plane in a hurricane
Flew too high
In my last flight out
In the haste came down crashing in disdain
And ended up melting in the rain
All this time, my world relied
On fleeting wealth and alibis
And all just now my reveries subside
And all the fragments of my shattered heart
Is all that’s left I’m pricked picking up
Who can make me well? Who can make well?
In those days gone by
Even then and now

I wrote this song two years ago and kept it somewhere. On the aftermath of typhoon Haiyan, this was remembered and continued with the recording along with brokenness of heart. I believe it is timely for people to hear some sounds of hope.
Feel free to share. Translation anyone? Buy music here and give to Jesus Reigns Ministries relief and medical operations.

A simple reminder to be strong. My simple cover here.
To tell somebody “I will be here” is placing yourself to commit to this promise. Many people need you to be there for them.
Simply trust in the Lord. It may be difficult at times but there’s no other way to get by. God bless.
A classic worship song I grew up listening to. Beyond words we can worship in awe.
A nice song from Jason Mraz and played it with my ukelele for mothers’ day of June 2012. This is for my Mom! Don’t give up on our moms. www.facebook.com/divinoriveramusic
A praise song — the first cover song I wanted posted here. Just want to start first with God. Please have a glance on a related journal I have written HERE.
