As I pen these things
It might literally be all I have
Ink on paper
Does any of this matter?
Then I’m reminded of what I’ve seen
The places I love and the people I’ve been
Only Love could have brought me to this place
Holding in me a joyful heart while spit covers my face
I’ve come to forgive those who’ve wronged me
Knowing that they’ve helped make me into exactly who You intended me to be
I’m trying my best to be a better man
Despite all my fears, I really am
I write these things to remind myself
That amidst this darkness, there still remains
Light, Hope, and a perfect plan
For the first time in my life
I am writing for the sake of writing
Living for the sake of living
Loving for the sake of loving
And I’ll live
So you can call this sort of life a hopeless endeavor
That this tiny vessel could ever endure such violent weather
Call it pointless
I’ll continue to carry out Grace none the less
I will scream it till my face is blue
There is a point to all of this and its always been You

    My InterpretationSo My Interpretation is that Joel is writing a story of what he's seen in his past love life possibly and he is trying to remind him self that he has indeed changed Also telling himself that he is a better man He goes on to say I'm writing for the sake of writing which means that this being as an ocean is his life now and he has to do this to live and get money living for the sake of living means that he thanks g-d for being alive and living Loving for the sake of loving means that he thanks his past fiancé and or girlfriend that he had a great time being with them and loving them He goes on to say that Ill continue to carry out grace none the less which means that he will carry out G-DS Grace
