“Sound Waves”

dangling
requires holding on
but to what

if you hold on
to the past
you’re bound to fall

if you hold on
to a circumstance
you’re bound to not see

if you hold on
to one’s burden
you’re bound to be weighted

and sink to the bottom
where yelling seems necessary
to break through the waters

but it doesn’t have to be

let go of one another
let go of the worry
let go of the past

and grab hold of Him
Who pulls you up
to see through His Heart

“The Other way”

a world full of
wonder and
lust
gratification in every want
not knowing
that the want is
darkness
always eating
always playing
always digging a grave
deeper
with no way to escape
seeing darkness
as light
the dirt
as a blanket
the shovel
as a sword
chewing the air
to swallow
seeing
the opening at top
slipping further away
until
nothing

When I reached where he sleeps at the museums, he was nowhere in sight, so back over the bridge I went. I was hoping maybe he was in the restroom or something. When I arrived back at the statues, he was nowhere to be found, so I called a friend.

Immediately, Barry prayed. We lifted Lee up because Continue reading
