“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

State of Denial

battle lines were drawn in this place

it’s beautiful in the darkest of ways

i’ll write names in the dirt

and sit awhile

and watch for the dead to rise

~

in a state of denial i will wait

with rubble right beside me

and dust on my feet

here i stay

and turn a blind eye

to what made it this way

and i’ll wait…

i will wait…

~

each side feared the other side

and both were wrong and right

but my opinion is opinions

should keep to themselves

or have the good kings fight it out – on their own

~

in a state of denial i will wait

with rubble right beside me

and dust on my feet

here i stay

and turn a blind eye

to what made it this way

and i’ll wait…

i will wait…

~

and forget the past and the present

and the blood and the sweat

that drips off my face

and washes the dust off my feet

and i’ll laugh…

i will laugh…

at a joke i’d forgotten ’til today

~

in a state of denial i will wait

with rubble right beside me

and blood on my feet

here i stay

and turn a blind eye

to what made it this way

and i’ll wait…

i will wait…

Marbles

the world was spinning around and around and around and when it stopped everyone was flung up and out into space all whirling confused and disoriented and dizzy from spinning too much and so fast and no one could go back because out there gravity wasn’t existing like on earth and they were too far away anyway and soon everyone was really tired and hungry but they couldn’t sleep because they kept getting flipped upside down and they just weren’t used to it and they couldn’t eat since the world forgot to fling the food out with the rest of everything and so pretty soon they all just gave up and died and their dead bodies were floating around in every direction and it turns out one of the little angels had a momentary lapse of reason and was up there playing marbles with the planets

Give

Give everything up that contains you

Give it all up you’ve more than enough

Take nothing from no one and something from no one

Till no one has nothing and nobody loses

And you have won and so have I

Since you began to follow my instructions
