09. The Deep Hollow

by Jerry Akin


There was a time way back when
He felt misunderstood.
He headed down a dusty road
That led him through the woods.
He met companions here and there
They followed every sign
They traveled on, went everywhere
Thinking they were fine.
Times were had and memories made,
He hid away his sorrow.
Life was fun and so carefree
In the Deep Hollow.

By the light of a yellow moon
He sang his merry song,
But when autumn turned to winter
Oh, the nights grew long.
The friends he made had disappeared
The road he walked had split apart.
The song he once sang soon would haunt him, and leave him in the dark.
Leaves that fall upon the ground
leave no trail to follow.
Laughter loses meaning when
Your lost in the Deep Hollow.

He went from numb to feeling pain
He started missing home.
He knelt down in the freezing rain
Where once the sun had shone.
He asked that God would hear his prayer,
And send a sign to follow.
He begged and prayed for guiding light
To lead him through the hollow.

And then one day as the tears rolled down,
Through his vision blurred,
He could see his destination,
And he sang these words:
“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I’m found
Was blind, but now I see”
You see, Life had lost its meaning when
He had no path to follow,
But Amazing Grace had rescued him
From the Deep Hollow.
