those ears.. eager to hear what they wish to believe
They listen with hunger and zest
wishing to settle all this unrest
Pour it all out – little by little
gleaning it up until You get your fill
and it becomes the absolute real even as it sits you still..
One lie turns into many and the truth gets lost until a lie is all that’s left
at such a cost – it’s crushing heavy in your chest..
It will leave you walking on your knees as you grieve what you can’t perceive..
Stand strong – don’t give in to fit where you don’t belong..
Comfort is a tough thing to give away
Don’t fear what you don’t know
Allow yourself to grow
The end game is worth the fall..
I see empty space through your face as time stands still..
Those child eyes alive with fear that always see more than there is
I see it too
I travel through you
Sitting beautifully still and feeling everything you do
Miles away – you still shine through
completing everything I thought I knew
Come what may I won’t fade away, though it’s hazy and turning gray..
memories will hold me
And carry us through
There’s no escaping the fate of you..
I’ll keep you safe as I tuck us in and brace for the phase about to begin..
What’s etched on the heart is here to stay though the words keep changing day by day..
we may put to rest the story we knew
But the pages keep turning for me & you..
aging and sagging in place of the smiles
Exhaustion and tiredness instead of sweet miles
Our eyes becomes shaded and jaded with time
And genuine hopefulness turns on a dime
But stand where He is and hold out your hand
He sees beauty and grace across my face
Restoring and loving me despite my haste
Because of His wonderfulness I can finish this race..
I love the nothing that makes me long to be that something of us..
Why the inferno raging within..
you’re lost in the haze
Hidden in the blaze
It’s not in the look you create
Nor in the steps you make
Nor in the pretenses you strive to fake
Let the smoke choke out who you aren’t..
Don’t forget who you are..
each breath taken with care, purpose, passion..
deeply imbedded within
taste the goodness – feel the greatness –
live the fullness of life..
Give to yourself what you give to me
Such a beautiful human that needs to be free..
Wonderful beautiful you
unleash yourself from the games alight in your mind-
free from the lies being told
and leave behind the stories waiting to unfold..
You’re strolling – you’re walking – controlling the madness
Chanting and whispering with passion unfolding..
You start with a purpose and end at a loss
As the weight of the cross grows heavier with the mass..
you disappear -bit by bit – as each new thought and each new view is pounded into you..
Who can speak louder – who can overpower
Who can do most evil yet smell like a flower…
let’s cover up the stench
And bury the lies – until each truth simply dies..
Confusion abounds – your mission unclear –
Why oh why is it no one can hear…
I’m speaking I’m certain till I’m blue in the face
But we’ve lost something special – this human race-
without love as the base, we have no case..
soothing words settling my soul
You inspire a beautiful burning hunger within..
What is it worth
if it lacks love..
What does it prosper if I can’t find my way out..
You gave me direction in my lost world –
raw, real, honest
One of a kind – planting me so firmly
I will sway every which way – yet never loose my footing
The more I understand the less I know..
I only know
You give all you have –
The very best
Because it is for us..
Impossible intangible invisible..
real as can be
Something is about to give
Push the pedal down
let it take you
It’s unknown how hard the push will be
Or where you will be when you are set free
You have nothing left to lose..
Broken fractured souls
are healed in the freedom
of giving into the mystery..
scream until the light breaks through
Until the streaks of sunlight make you glow..
You aren’t the only fractured soul waiting to be made whole
Your lowest low will rise you to the highest highs..
Hold on tight
The other side is sweeter than sweet
And will fill you with delight..
