My risk a beauty

Remember sugar for dinner was sweet
The sweetest a reminder for you to eat
How you sang nobody said it was easy
When it is meant to be read it is funny

Have seen you but never have met you
Absence noticed presence sought true
Fell for you for the most random kind act
The kindest for a while and that is the fact

Good mornings and nights were all we did
From Cuba is hard to keep the feelings hid
You made a race even to be the first to say
I still rue we missed Ralph to this very day

Hands and hair so soft to hold and smell
Beauty in all green I remember so well
Your graceful hair cut made me the best
A miss you too from you I am so blessed

Notice from your red profile anticipated
Where you are I am always appreciated
But from exactly that things got so crazy
Message you have read was not from me

How words so meaningful became a joke
Sad to witness a fragile start easily broke
The truest of feelings made to seem a lie
The harshest injustice to a man such as I

You Are

From my mother’s womb you have known me
Knitted every strain of cells in my body
Gave me the heart for the man I am to be
You are there from the start for me to see

The woman you have blessed me to call mother
She has in her heart for us to know thee
The only one important for us to come together
Every early morning circled-around to praise thee

So from my youth I have heard thee
All the wondrous things you have done
In the scriptures as it is written down
Also the life stories I hear of the family

Growing up and maturing has never been easy
A lot of things I wish I could have done differently
So sorry for all the choices I made unwisely
But I’m grateful to see and feel you in everything
Never ever letting me go, your faithfulness unchanging

No doubt it is you and always you
Who has been there for me for sure
Now as a man wanting to know more
Guide me always to come to you
That I may be with you forever more
For truly from forever to forever, You Are

How wide the divide

My mother-in-law is ninety-five years old. She has lived through several wars and numerous other cataclysmic events in her life. Nothing has her more perplexed, shocked, and almost emotionally stunned as the culture wars that have been waged and have changed our world. I see her sitting in church when I am visiting her, obviously wondering why all of her past memories have been lost in the present format of worship. She is not at home either in the world or in her church and eagerly awaits the day when she can be in the City of God, her eternal home. What has changed? How did we get here? As Nietzsche would say, “Is there any up or down left? Who gave us a sponge to wipe away the horizon? Will lanterns have to be lit in the morning hours? What sacred games will we need to invent?” Yes, a century ago these times were imagined and they are now here. While the secular world has invented its secular games, many churches have invented their own “sacred” games. 
The most daunting question f…

The Japanese House - Teeth

I’m still burned and my blood creeps
I’m the sun-flooded mouth and I cannot speak
I’m the scars upon your knees
I’m the scrapes of iron your skin breathes
I could be anything

And it was so brief
A kick in the teeth
Oil and powdered lungs
Because i know how to breathe
And it was so brief
I want more time for luck
And then I go again

You're the movements in my sleep
You are the words I couldn't keep
I saw the fumes and watched them seep
Into the wounds you bear to bleed
I could lose everything

And it was so brief
A kick in the teeth
Oil and powdered lungs
Because i know how to breathe
And it was so brief
I want more time for luck
And then I go again

You love
When I saw you

Matt Corby - Resolution

I'm giving up, this whole lie is on me
Call it out like a family
Instead I bide my time, get a ride
Until the rubber leaves the road

You said don't lie so I made the truth
Seemed like a lie to even you
Control your fear, it's clear
That you did not know where you're going to

So don't you worry
You'll be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You'll be my resolution

One month down and it's in sight
Oh I'm guaranteed to lose my mind
It's dangerous to speak and sigh
You might know what I'm trying to hide

So from the cradle to quarter age
Oh I bought the book but didn't flip the page
Oh readiness is near we steer
As far away from the coming of days

So don't you worry
You'll be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You will be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You'll be my resolution

Turn around put it down and see
That this is really the place to be
I'm not you, nor you me
But were both moving steady

The Misunderstood Gift

It's been a while since my last post so, hello! :) And also for being away so long, I hope this post will be a see-again gift to you. I do believe it will, I am blessed by the message I just have to share with the hope that it will also bless you the same. And I know it's really too early but let me just wish you a merry Christmas!


CAZZETTE - Sleepless ft. The High

It kills my heart to see
Your eyes are no longer on me
It's critical to me
You stop messing with me

It kills my heart to know
You don't think this love could grow
Cause anywhere you'd go
You know I would follow

You kissed my heart you know
Like no one ever did before
And I heard you moved on
Yeah I heard you moved on

I can't get no sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
