A Name in Vain

All the good children are throwing their stones as they’re tearing the flesh and breaking the bones Telling the broken how they are so wrong and how their faith is not really and truly that strong Flock in the fancy and glorified temple no longer of humbleness or love that is simple Give your whole life to a small circle of cult Keep out the … Continue reading A Name in Vain

The Short Distance

Time is not on our side. The clock is ticking–counting down. Life began in a flash, and it ends the same way. We breathe in life, and exhale our demise.   The heart and brain. The skeletal structure.

You hate yourself now. “I’m no longer worthy”, you claim. “Look at what I’ve caused…” Each day is the same. Time for the tasks, but you wallow in despair. Self-pity is the norm in the life you prepare. Children to raise, shopping to do, but … Continue reading The Weight
