Looking To The Sky

Been here a million times pondering why death came knocking at my door now I search to place the blame. I realize I can not disguise my part in it and not quit thinking the whys or lies as on this fair day as I sit. Looking in the mirror is so hard to do…

Our Eden

Crack in the ceiling, endlessly believing what your’e feeling God will be forgiving. In a garden weeping, on a cross a sacrifice, in an empty tomb he liberated us so to rise. You’ve made a way, upon a rock a skull, where all can follow and hear songs lull. Armor it falls away in bed…

They Call You Ambition

My Letter To The Devil I’m more than just a little curious you restore calm amongst the furious. *** It is like your hands wave a wand. One minute there it is then is gone. *** You are no Christ born carpenter you want aggrandizement when through. *** A heaven’s hell is stoked by treason;…

Sweet Damnation

How does this suppose go, in my arms that do grow weary as time does slow, a path I do suppose know? Shall I assume to embrace the ways your face or race runs me all over the place; I’m tired and question days. The time I knew so familiar, as I walk the path…

Empty Grails

The Lord he created all delicate but it now seems people bring forth fire, cause strife’s suffering. We now do dance near the flames rising high, moving our mouths so bitter in burning light. I confess to the duress; can you see it done too? In droves we in our spite drive daggers through. Nothing…

My Feet My Arms

I am drawn poorly so sorely I move on upon the ground I move already gone. My God he is mute now before my eyes are wicked creatures and secrets of lies. Shall I examine here in this brief candle lit by an absent being; this life I can’t handle. I a vision of grace…

I Guess I’m Damned

Pride is spoken of in the Bible as a hindrance. There is an obvious conflict when one talks about pride. How can someone be both humble yet also confident without being prideful? There are times when I think of what I have power over and the reality is that I only have power over my…

Rest For Our Souls

The world it does reveal and destroy; it has certainly changed this boy. When life conspires to take your joy flight or fight ways we must employ. I have stood to fight the good fight with all my strength, will and might. My preachers they were not right, fighting often is not quite so polite….

Appropriate Anger

“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” (Ephesians 4: 26-27 KJV) The beach against the tide has nowhere it can hide. Were it a soul against spite, mercilessly the spite derides. For those without sight or those who can’t fight mercy pleases God’s eyes as we offer…

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2, Pain According To C.S. Lewis

For a long time I have had a poem about hurt that I’ll share a little later this week. Hurt exists from the fact we are in touch with what true joy really is. The deeper we love the more pain we feel. The more in touch we are with our feelings the more honest…

Contemplation At Eden’s End

This tiny earth you should know where you are is bit by the snow. The land is so rife, stiffled not nice. There’s bitter ice cutting as if a knife. So sayeth God our hearts are odd. We take breaths often to breathe smog. Since original sin, what a way to begin, a starting clock…

Proof

What if there was no love? Architect’s specs from above. Whether there is a God question not. Just give a moment for these thoughts. It would be as if a structure had no beams; doomed to rupture. What magic it is that bonds together? That makes weight light as a feather. Wonder we would in…
