THE WALL

the-wall

 

She gave a lot of excuses

So many reason why…

Reasons why she couldn’t try

She would sometimes cry

Make a scene

And go back to her life of sin

Cheating herself

And nobody else

She thought she was smart

And she would tell them this and that

She told them about the wall

The wall that was responsible for her fall

She would exaggerate about its height

“Oh! What a sight!” she would cry

“It’s so tall!”

But she was only fooling herself

There was really no wall

Her fears and imagination had teamed up

They created a wall

They built it

She supported it

And to her, it existed

What a prey…on her they feasted!

She was her own worst enemy

Building nonexistent walls all around her

Walls that would deter her…

…Walls that were stopping her from being who she should have been

A figment of her imagination

What an evil creation!

A wall seen

Seen only by her!

 

What a waste of talent!

What a waste of a beautiful destiny!

Why!!!

Tear down the walls, pretty one!

Recreate a new path!

Forge on!

Don’t hold back your greatness!

Be the you you were created to be!

The you you were called to be!

Not the you decorated with fear!

You are great!

Created perfectly by God!

Be the you He created you to be!

Not the you the world wants you to be!

YOU WILL BE FINE

you-will-be-fine_small
 

I mean you no harm
I just want to soothe the pain like a balm
And cause you to be calm
Here, take my hand
Let’s sit here and listen to the band
Let’s watch them play our favorite song
Oh…it’s been soooo long!
They play music so good
It feeds my soul like food
Here we are at night
Listening to good Christmas tunes under the moonlight
I know how sad you are
You gaze at me but you seem so far
Don’t let a broken heart cause you to forget…
…to forget the sweet melody of life
Cast away the knife
Don’t bruise your heart some more
Let the tears pour
But don’t let them pour forever
Don’t let them win…never!
Look…you are worth more that diamonds
I can write this on the wall with crayons

 

“You are beautiful!
You are loved!
You are strong!
You are blessed!
You will be fine!
This too shall pass!”

 

So, cheer up
Chin up
Don’t give up
You will be fine
Just give it time

 

In the meantime…
…let’s sway to this beautiful Christmas melody
Oh! Such sweet sweet melody!
You will be fine, my darling!
You will be fine!

BE THE CURE

BE THE CURE.jpg

 

In a world filled with so much sorrow

Be the pen that writes a happy tale

Be the eyes that sees the good in people

Be the nose that appreciates the pleasant smell of blooming flowers

Be the mouth that speaks kind words

Be the lips that spreads the Good News

Be the hands that give to the needy

Be the stomach that hungers but gets satisfied

Be the heart that holds no grudge

Be the legs that lead right

Be the feet that taps to good music

Be the builder and not the destroyer

Be the encourager and not the bully

Be the best version of you

Sow the best seeds you have

Reap a good harvest and be grateful

Give thanks whenever you can

 

Too many people are dying from depression

Be the cure

And not the cause

WHO ARE YOU?

WHO ARE YOU..fw.png

 

Tell me

Who are you?

When you roll in the mud

And your white is soiled

Will you die in the mud?

Or will you look up to the Lord?

 

So who are you?

Tell me

Judas?

He knew sin

He did sin

He struggled with the guilt

And then it killed him

Thirty pieces of silver…the price of betrayal

He ended it at night

He gave up the fight

With no one in sight

He let the thread snap

 

So who are you?

Tell me

Peter?

Strong Peter slipped

He did sin

Three times he denied his King

The guilt enveloped his being

He wept so hard in repentance

But he didn’t give up at night

He waited for the morning

Cephas he was

He thrived

 

So tell me

Who are you?

When you roll in the mud

And your white is soiled

Will you die in the mud?

Or will you look up to the Lord?

THE TEARS WON’T STOP

THE TEARS WON’T STOP.jpg

I try to fight back the tears

They keep coming

They keep pouring

I throw my head back

What a joke!

They don’t stop

They keep flowing

They need to stop!

Come on…please!

I need to stop crying

I try to feign a smile

But that doesn’t help

The dam burst

The tears poured

Now I can’t stop them

This can’t continue!

Someone help me!

Anybody!

I should have control!

I must stop this!

The tears keep flowing

Why?!

I try to forget your name

The memories we shared

The thought of you being gone

The pain

The memories of seeing you take your last breath

You struggling for life

You on the hospital bed

The pain!

Oh!

I try!

I’m trying!

Lord help me!

The tears keep coming

The pain of loss

The death of a loved one

The pain that tears my heart apart

The pain I feel

You are gone!

Breath gone!

You gone!

The tears won’t stop

IT’S ALL AN ACT

IT’S ALL AN ACT.jpg

I tell you I’ll be out of town

You wear a frown

But that’s all part of your plan

It’s all an act

You think I know not the fact

You try to fool me

You sob and plead

You beg me to stay home some more

To cancel my tour

You are such an actor

You hide the fact that you are a traitor

You carry my bags

You help me to the car

You tell me you love me

You cry…false tears

You hold my hands

You make endless promises

You cry some more

I kiss your teary cheeks

I feign sorrow

Your act I borrow

Knowing deep in my heart

Knowing you are a liar and a cheat

Knowing you are unfaithful

Knowing you mock our vows

Knowing your promises are empty

 Knowing all your secrets

Saying nothing

Acting innocent and dumb

Hoping our vows still mean something

You walk me to the car

You promise to stay away from the bar

But deep in my heart

I know you are a drunk

I know all your secrets

I know about your mistress

I’ve cried secrets tears in distress

But today it all ends

I’ve seen all the bends

Your secret routes and deeds

I would no longer play the fool

You’ve broken all the rules

But today it all ends

I won’t get into a fight

My future is so bright

I hold your hand so tight

I let a tear slip

I bid you goodbye
