What would you like to share with us?

This was one of the first songs I wrote. It's called "Father of Many."

When I was younger than I am now, I would sit on the eastern edge of New York City looking out over the East River and the up at the sky. It was here that I first came out of the closet to my friends and family, and it was also here that I started to believe in God. When I would look at the sky and consider eternity, I started to think that maybe someone was looking back at me.


"Father of Many" Lyrics:

With tears in his eyes he looks to the infinite sky

He hears a voice say, "there is no need to hide

You have wandered far

May I see those scars

How'd you like to see them shine like stars

See there is man from long ago

Who heard my voice and followed home

To a land where living waters flow

A land I'd like to show you

Take my hand; I am with you

Now here is where this story begins

An unnamed boy's been marred by sin

Alone and clothed in garments of skin

He's learned he is frail

He in and exhales

And wonders what lies behind the veil

As he looks out on the endless shore

He can't help but hope there is more

He lifts his eyes and opens up the door

The infinite sky looks into his infinite eyes

And whispers 'my boy, come to other side

Just beyond the stars

Is never that far

Close your eyes in mine see who you are

As you cross the desert and the sea

Remove the sandals from your feet

Feel the sand, so shall your siblings be

Come receive your crown

I won't let you drown

As you run learn to lay your life down

Hear your mother laugh at what's to come

For though your journeys just begun

Your family's waiting for you my son'"
