Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography

Cult husband, cult wife
Too many children, what a life
Homeschooled in hard times
Dirty hands collecting dimes
He likes to wrestle, she loves to cook
Who would have guessed they wrote a book

On the street it's bittersweet
Without a car they can't go far
Mending clothes they stay inside
Heaven knows it's more than pride
They're not the types to run and hide
They're planning things, it's in their eyes

The team's redeemed, the tension mounts
They have their dreams and that's what counts
A heavy load both night and day
They promised God they'd find a way
A few more guns, a better aim
For the little ones, a brand new game
