Unknown Glee

Swallow me up in your world…

Take all and leave a little for me

Swallow me up in your world

Thrust me into an unknown glee

Remove the boundaries

Remove my clothes

Leave me bare exposing my heart

Swallow me up in your life

Rebuke the lies and strife

Make me feel wanted

My life is yours to engulf

Take all of me

Thrust me into an unknown glee

Peace and love,

Moments that Pass

Dew on the grass and the flowers that bloom…

 

Morning dew fills the grass

Moments that pass

They are like blessings

Nothing in the present, future, or past

Moments that pass

Each day I’m here I laugh

Things could be worse

What have I done to make them better?

Moments that pass

When days get darker I remember the dew

Dew on the grass and the flowers that bloom

Moments that pass

Move over and make room

Something new is coming and going to change me

Am I ready or will it last?

These moments that pass

Rebirth and growth

Let these moments not pass me

I am ready

 

 

Peace and love,

Big City Lights

With hundreds of headlights staring back at me…

The evening Sun shines on me

Shines it’s light for all to see

I run through the Big City Lights

With hundreds of headlights staring back at me

Traffic lights blinking red and green

For an instant, it feels like a dream

The world revolves around me it seems

Just for an instant, you revolve around me

The beat of my heart mimics the horns being blown at me

I stand in the street and realize it’s not about me

It’s not about these blinking lights or the big one in the sky

No matter what I do the echoes of you fill my ears

The look of you blesses my eyes

In these buildings of concrete and steel

There are people hustling and bustling just to feel real

There are walls of glass reflecting the Big City Lights

There’s an essence in the atmosphere of what’s wrong and right

However, there is something that I have yet to see

Running through these Big City Lights with me

You

You use to like the glaring gleam of the light and its stream

But to me, it seems the brightness of the lights can no longer be seen

 

Peace and Love,

Thunder

Thunder out loud

Boom is the sound

Scaring the crowd

Boom is the sound

Loud and Proud with the shriek of a thousand claps

Boom is the sound

Thunder pounds the ground

Drops of rain hit the mound

Boom is the sound

Rain that speaks to the Earth’s pain

Heat rises to cause the wind to blow and waves to crash

Lightning flashes across the sky

The rain mimics the tears from my eyes

What a frightening and invigorating sound

When the thunder is loud

Boom is the sound

 

 

Peace and Love,

The Blind Date

We realized the blind can’t lead the blind…

When I open my eyes I search for your face

It escapes my vision, not quite in my point of view

You aren’t exactly what I hoped for is plastered on both of our faces

You shudder as I inch closer to you and avoid my attempted greet and embrace

This reminds me of the chase but normally both people are in the race

Perhaps this was a mistake plays in my mind like an old record player

It constantly skips the best part

We realize that the blind can’t lead the blind

So I close my eyes and open them again

Hoping that just maybe this time it will be different

Maybe all of my time won’t be annoyingly spent

I’ve gotta stop letting my friends set me up on these things

As that thought crosses my mind, my phone rings

Sigh. This is an emergency and I’ve gotta run

Dodged a bullet, now I can go have some real fun (Netflix and leftovers)

 

 

 

 

Peace and Love,

Time

When the clock begins to tick and tock

Things around the world turn to rock

Oh, stop time for you’re going too fast

I want to make this life last

I wish to take journeys not yet seen

Oh, time your insolence is so mean

Time is leaving me now

As it waves its hands, I begin to smile

Then I drown my hopes and fears in the endless sea of time

Is my time up?

Touching Individual Moments Every-day

Time has made me whole

Even though I hear pestilential cries

I hold my head up high

For in the nick of time again

I’ve been saved from this endless troublesome time of sin

Time, you change your ways so much

You work against me and then for me

Time, what I am afraid of and what I fear

Is when the time is no longer here

Can We Start Over?

Can we start over? Can we begin again?

Has my light shown itself to sin?

Where are you? Where is my trust in you?

Who in the hell do you think you are?

To come into my life and try to leave a mark.

To lie to me, to cry to me.

If this is love then I want a refund

It’s no longer fun, it’s no longer us.

Where is the trust?

Where is the person I thought I knew?

The person I could tell anything to.

The person that never judged me but instead trusted me, loved me and held me.

Where is this person?

You asked me, Can we start over?

Shit, I don’t know.

Can you take back the lies or the tears I had to cry?

My hope for us and my hope for you is that we can try.

The trust we had I no longer pursue.

Can we start over? Can we begin again?

Have I shown my light to you again?

Has my light shown itself to sin?

The Enemy’s Games

Oh how the enemy loves to play their games

Trapping us at the moment when we go insane

For that second or 3, we have given them the power over us

Power over our attitude and actions

Although we can only blame ourselves by letting the enemy get that close

The enemy will go to any lengths and that is what hurts the most

No matter the detriment no matter the cost

The enemy plays with our minds and our hearts

Attempting to scramble them and tear us apart

Why do we give this power to someone we don’t know?

Are we afraid to give the power back to ourselves?

Be strong in the times that the enemy perceives us as weak

All we can do is pray that the hand doesn’t land on the other cheek

Pray that the mistakes the enemy catches us in, won’t destroy our joy

Pray and decide to never let the enemy win again

Oh how the enemy loves to play their games

They won’t win this time

I have the upper hand, the royal flush, the ace in the hole

Enemy, you won’t win my soul.

Fly off the Mountain

Feel the breeze blowing under your arms, imagine giving into it.

You don’t have to stay where you are, you are only limited by the cement that you pour on your feet.

Instead of allowing that to prevent you from taking that step, maybe choose to fly.

Maybe choose you, for once in your life.

Lift the weights that hold down your arms, that hold down your mind.

Maybe choose you, maybe fly off the mountain.

 

Peace and Love,

Rocky Bridges

Can We Make it Across?

Tumbling stones slamming against the trail that we attempt travel.

Journeying through this mountain together understanding that there will be some obstacles in our path.

We come across a bridge that tests our strength and balance.

Can we make it across? What is it that stops us from trying?

Is it fear?

Fear of knowing that if we try we won’t succeed or fear that we will.

You have to try because we can’t keep playing around on these rocky bridges.

Peace and Love
