“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

Just Saying

Warm drinks have a way of opening the mind to profound thoughts. They make you wonder why we want things in the extreme. It’s either hot or cold, never lukewarm. We don’t want the boring or the normal, we want the astounding and the new. Why? Can’t we be satisfied with what we have? When we are handed something, we say thanks, don’t we? Well, if God handed us our life, shouldn’t we be glad we got it, instead of “graciously declining” it or attempting to trade it for what we think would suit us better? The way our lives are is the way God made them, and I think the Creator of everything knew what he was doing. Just saying.

with your eyes shut tight

and the book held close

you walk the halls

and appear to most

a religious fool

an overzealous man

but you keep on walking

and you let them stare

your lips may move

but no words come out

and they all wonder

what you pray about

and they hope the God

they don’t believe in

will listen if you’re

praying for them

you sit outside

and watch them leaving

and listen to their

silent suffering

and they laugh at you

to hide the trembling

and they whisper

so you cannot hear them

your lips may move

but no words come out

and they all wonder

what you pray about

and they hope the God

they don’t believe in

will listen if you’re

praying for them

Railways (Chorus)

On a one way train

To a brand new life

I crashed and burned

As the flames grew high

I felt the pain

Of a break inside

And I knew the hurt

Was the endless fight

For a life

Full of love

I am reaching for you

Reaching above

With the hope

You’re enough

To pull me out of

The wreckage of me…

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

The World I Watched

While I was mesmerized

By the movements of the world

And the little people there

That make it move and pulse

Through me a sickening feeling

That I thought I understood

You were doing greater things

While I just stood there

And did nothing worth anything

Just watched the colored screen

That trapped the little people

On the world that mesmerized me

So there you were…

Creating love and peace

And hope and perfecting

All the little people

And their lovely little minds

Enjoying what you did

To the fullest extent of happiness

Which really had no end

Until you smiled

And saw me watching

And saw I hated what you made

And I wished it all was back

To what it was before

So I could relish in the mess

Of  a broken little world

That had me mesmerized

And laughing at the fumbles

Of the game

Yet then you started reaching

To the deepest part if me

And further on you went

And I couldn’t help but stay

Letting you destroy my heart

To build it up again

Better than it was before

And you know what mesmerized me?

It was the beauty of the soul

I saw inside me

And I was saddened by the world

I saw around me

The life I led in standing back and watching

And pointing out the mistakes of the people

That inhabited the world

That mesmerized me…

Of Moses

i cover my ears with the palms of my hands

no i don’t want to hear the screaming

i don’t want to see the pain

of my people

i need to hear your voice

but i can’t if i’m deaf to the world

no i can’t if i’m running away

from the suffering

~

you said take the rod in my hand

and remove my sandals

remove my sandals

look the ground on which i stand

is holy

and i’m a sinner

you said from the start i was chosen

to bring freedom

to bring freedom

from the slavery of our choices

i need to lead them

i need to free them

~

here i am with a trail behind me

all the hurting and the helpless

and even further an army led

by a broken promise

i feel the hate of a godless brother

i lose my fear because i know what we have

because i know that we are

your people

~

you said take the rod in my hand

and lift it to you

lift it to you

part the waters and find land

and trust you

to hold them for us

i can say when i reach the end

now i see  you

now i know you

for the one called jehovah

is holy

and i’m a sinner

The Rope

The air gets clearer near the end

I feel the weight of an ageless hand

I look down and you’re barely there

But from where you are it would hurt to land

Were you to fall

We’ve never fought like this before

I feel we’ve no love anymore

I look down and see you slipping

And I’m afraid I wouldn’t care

Were you to fall

~

I need to know

Would you let go

At the top of the mountain

When I’m out of sight

Would you have the strength

To hold my rope

When I’m only halfway

When I’ve lost all will to fight

I need to know

Would you let go

~

I’ve something pulling at my heart

I feel the guilt of violent thoughts

I’m scared to look what have I done

But there you are still hanging on

Why won’t you fall

The sun is setting on our fantasies

Are we meant to part as enemies

My arms are shaking my tears like ice

Consider my desires as casualties

Were you to fall

~

I need to know

Would you let go

At the top of the mountain

When I’m out of sight

Would you have the strength

To hold my rope

When I’m only halfway

When I’ve lost all will to fight

I need to know

Would you let go

~

You look above like you know what I’m thinking

I see your eyes and the fear inside them

I know not what drove me to this

I am so sickened by me

Answer me before I do it

It makes no difference to me

~

I just need to know

Would you let go

At the top of the mountain

When I’m out of sight

Would you have the strength

To hold my rope

When I’m only halfway

When I’ve lost all will to fight

I need to know

Would you let go

~

I need to know

Would you let go?
