Every Second 

A kaleidoscope of memories 

Sprints across my eyes

Realizing all that was

Each and every moment 

Living and dying all at once 

The essence of right now 

Surfaces so clearly 

As I remember 

What seems to be yesterday 

There is nothing to grasp 

There is simply 

The letting go 

Being present 

As every second dances away from me 

Yet paints a beautiful memory 

Let the sky become a canvas 

Your breath a song 

And create it with blissful ness 

As I close my eyes 

And I am grateful

Home

Where would I possibly go

If in this very moment

Your blessing abounds 

Whether in the tallest building 

Or nestled in my sheets 

Swimming in the ocean 

Or seated on the shore 

There is truly nothing 

But your love 

Beyond all the scents

And the abundance of colors 

That surround me

I kneel before your beauty 

And I am home 

Truly 

Do not think of me keenly 

I do promise thee

That I will fail you 

And leave tears where Love reigned 

This admiration you feel

Is merely illusion 

Only the Heavenly Father 

Deserves this praise

I am just a man 

Try as might 

To forget this reality

I am fallen

But loved by his creator 

I can only ask forgiveness of thee

For my foolish ways 

Words and actions 

I pray you know 

This love in my heart 

That grows with his every word 

Because it is there 

That you will know me

Truly 

Scripture 

Tell me

You’ll pray with me

That God will be first in all we do

And when you see me on my knees

Thankful in tears 

That you’ll join beside me

Bow your head as I do 

Whisper sweet nothings 

In my creators ears

Where it becomes everything 

And from there

Our love can blossom 

With the promise of today

Tomorrow 

What was 

washed away

As his hands touch ours 

This will be our courting season 

Not Netflix and chill 

But Scripture and prayers 

Tell me this is you

And every mistake before you

Shall be erased 

Tell me 

Redeemed 

There is no religion

Words and dogmas will always fall short 

Books can be burned

Erased

Used for selfish gain

Rituals designed by he who holds authority 

Only disguise your lack of knowledge 

No need to chant incessant sounds

Nor prostrate into various forms

Repeating syllables over and over won’t do

Even music falls short 

I can sing forever 

And dance in place

All this just a work out of the body

Can bleed out animal after animal 

On hand made idols 

Babble language, speak in tongues 

It all fails 

Before the one who gave it all 

Neither Church walls

Nor Mosque floors 

Monk postures 

Will suffice 

All that we can build crumbles 

All that we own isn’t ours 

When 10 out of 10 people die 

There’s only one escape 

One promise

Of which none other can make 

No other dogma can assure 

I will put my trust in him

Who gave to me and didn’t demand in return

For he loves me so 

Let all those around me depart 

Let them think me crazy 

Talk about me behind my back

It never stopped you before

I have hope in him 

When the darkness of life beckons you

Where will your hope be in?

Who will be your advocate?

I now have mine

For I stand redeemed in his blood
