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 fo…

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

Prismatic

How to start is in a way problematic
Yes relationship of two is enigmatic
Being different is the characteristic
of individuals being made so specific

Personal experiences historic
Stories of life-lived so dramatic
With past relationships ironic
Makes a thousand-piece mosaic
Scattered all messy and chaotic
Until altogether being artistic
Finding each other so aesthetic
A blessing worthy being angelic
Inspiring, no use in being egoistic

Why sometimes I could be idiotic
Green sandals wrapped in plastic
Only to be forgotten in metallic
Sent you photos to be apologetic
You are as forgiving so seraphic

Climb up to see crater so scenic
On horses could be more majestic
Refreshed senses so naturalistic
Whoever made that is a puristic

Woke up to realize I am allergic
If not alarmed, already systemic
Didn't wake you to get pharmaceutic
I'd rather you asleep so silent a music

Left a note could now be a relic
Would you also keep it so iconic?
During breakfast we seem identic
Casually att…

Life loves to love you

The sun is longed for in dark twirls of storms
A grand mountain, in low depths of valleys
Can't be said though, that bright light is gone
Or high peak has well lost its chill breeze

For the warmth of sunshine will still always be
Only if the you inside let the eyes clearly see
Being down erases not what you've achieved
No, don't let your true heart ever be deceived

Lucky are you to have sought deep into life
The secret that life itself loves to love you
With strong true believe the dying will revive
Realize, you can give back life some love too
