Treasure the trampled rose

before the lilies at the altar.

The only people for me are the ones who live life raw.  They have no pretense, wear no mask, and perform no charade — but just fucking burn burn burn with a passion for God and sex and love and hate and humanity and life.  They hear the whispers of gentle streams and cherish the tsunami roars. They treasure the trampled rose.  They defy excellence, deny expectation, and defend only the purest freedom any human being has ever known — by living it!

O Lord,
how much longer
will this continue?

Do You see
a people so violent
they slaughter their own

children
by the hour,
in the name of ‘rights?’

Can You, O Lord,
hear the children
screaming in the cities?

From the ground,
their blood cries out –
massacres in meadows!

O Lord,

the people preach violence
and pray for destruction
in the streets and the schools!

Children are murdered,
massacred daily in the meadows,
and every hour in the cities!

Their parents worship violence!
Guns are their god; the blood
of innocent children fills the altar!

They love living by the sword,
even as their children are slaughtered!
Such people worship a false god;

they cherish evil, delight in violence,
and take great joy in bloodshed!
Their children fall before their eyes

and still they refuse to see the truth.
Their eyes are blind, their hearts are sick;
twisted by false truths, their minds are insane!

Men of war have made a god of violence in their own image,
a deity of destruction designed by human hands in darkness,
and molded after their own sinful rights, for war and violence!

O Lord, how much longer will You allow
these snakes and sons of vipers to poison Your children?
Must You stay silent so long among such great sins?

Will the righteous children of hell
rule the day in the devil’s own kingdom?

A sinner knows what he is doing is wrong,

but a charlatan will justify his evil deeds.

Better to be a lost sheep found by The Good Shepherd

Before you accept somebody accusing you of abuse,

be sure that they are not, in fact, just treating you like shit.

MidNight Rising: A Year without Jesus

I get to work on time.
I always get a good nights sleep.
And I know how to clean a floor again.

I had a great Thanksgiving,
welcome in the company
of family and friends.

I decorated a Christmas tree
for the first time in five years.
And I even got to put the star on top.

From California to Connecticut,
people are happy to see me.
And I am always welcome.

Best of all,
I am loved for who I am.
And nobody makes me pay for my sins.

“I remember when it ended.
There was parades
and all kinds o’ confetti
in the streets.

“And everybody was happy
’cause they could
all go home
again.

“‘Cause all anybody
ever did was work –
fourteen, sixteen hours
a day, every day.”

~My Dad
