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

Alone with Him

You see my Spirit, my Lord. You see what you have placed within me the moment I opened my heart to you. In this imperfect man, your perfection lies. I tell the world that my faith in you sometimes wavers, and yet, your mercy remains… and the mercy of others doesn’t… and I’m frowned upon by these, “holy people”. They divide your people. They put … Continue reading Alone with Him

Why do so many love themselves before they love the desires of God? Why, in the unfathomably little amount of space that we truly take up within this … Continue reading All That Is

Rooted In Decay

What caused you to feel that way? So often, you speak of the misery. Is it worth the limited time you have here to dwell on your ancient history? Right now, the time is right to reflect, but not live in a place that your mind wanders to all too often; the place where you refuse to forgive. The wound upon your heart is bleeding … Continue reading Rooted In Decay
