Untitled…as of yet

I’m drawing in the sand,
the anger which has no name,
here for just a moment and an eternity

a precious soul laid out to sea,
washed away so easily,
foolishly dreamt to catch the breeze

Only to find the heir of despair
contemplation, suffocating me,
drawing in the sand.

The Standard

Sometimes you have to yield to the unreasonable, because of love. To go beyond that which is just, is the very nature of love. But in the midst of doing this, do not lose sight of the One true Love; and balance all against this standard, regardless of what the expected outcome might be. May you always have faith enough to let go, and allow God.

Listen

Listen…

I’ve spoken too much without listening. A product and prisoner of western thought, I’ve focused too much on changing things, rather than being changed.

Even if I know the utter truth, it matters not, given that I am not pure and taint every word that proceeds from my lips. The love I want to share is held captive to my own imperfections.

And if by some divine intercession, I find an unfiltered moment of light, what then?

How do I survive this world so, in such a state of being?

How do I hold on, and yet let go, that I might become?

I Listen.
