“Delete”

sometimes people hear what they want to hear
and only see what they want to see

words can be damaging
whether spoken or written
and when people speak or write from darkness
it’s a conduit for pain

I can’t imagine being mean to someone
who just lost a loved one
but honestly
I bet it happens all the time

my heart goes out to all those affected
by other people’s opinions
during times of mourning

whether your mourning the loss of your mother
or maybe mourning the loss of a friendship
an ability
a dream
an opportunity

just like grief has no boundaries
neither does loss
and both are individually tailored
to fit one’s internal wiring

thank God for those who stand with you
and fight for you
because if it was up to me alone right now
I wouldn’t be writing this

I’d be cowering away somewhere
afraid to speak
afraid to write
afraid to reach out for help

what other people think of me
is NONE of my business
I truly believe that
and God’s giving me plenty opportunities
to prove how I believe

the good thing about darkness being spread
through written words is
they only have power
if you read them

“Mirage”

how does darkness
make death
so appealing

a young girl cutting
a woman aborting
a man escaping
reality

there’s a veil
set in place
with a vision
of paradise
that’s decorated
until chains
set in place

locked in silence
held in isolation
surrounded in love
but on an island

not being able
to swim
to safety

stranded
in the dark
but surrounded
by Light

having to choose
to be free
having regret
looming
to take hold

so many
make the choice
to regret
so many
make the choice
to be freedom

be available
to listen
be coming
in love
be willing
to sacrifice
your opinion

darkness
is an illusion
that’s stepped into

help someone
step into
the Light

“Atmosphere”

you know
I don’t know the future
what God has planned
if anything will be the same
tomorrow
as it was today

if anything will change
to the beat of my heart
if anything will change
the beat of my heart

it doesn’t matter

where I look
will be a view
where I wake
will be a sun
where I sleep
will be a moon

so many things
are different
yet the same
so many meanings
have changed
from before

Words that Pierce

Have you ever been attacked by words? If you’re alive, your answer’s probably yes.

Before my retreat, I was attacked harshly by two different people, both “Christians”…both “speaking their truth in love,” but this isn’t a post about bashing them. It’s about continuing to move forward in spite of them.

If you’re new or old to my blog, you’ve probably noticed how I love God and how I live through His Heart. In doing so, I’ve realized all the dreams I have and how they’ll become reality in due time. One of these dreams is to write about whatever God puts on my heart and/or mind, and that’s what I’m currently doing, but it’s more than that. Continue reading
