What might it take for love to conquer anger

How is holistic compassion already more contagious than a-holistic self-hatred,

There is more than one way to hear a**holistic here,
but they all have to do with sectarian divides, apartheid walls

I’m lonely now without you here
Empty bedsheets cold beside me
Reminding me your soul is free

Absolving Ablutions
Some people believe that sin
Is easily washed away
Like scum on a bathtub wall

There is a Judgment Day
When all of your offspring discover
They have the Devil to pay...Read More

Forgiving Betrayal
When I spoke absolution, mercy upon another,  when absolving her of errors.
My soul was weightless, ascending through the air, a peace within me.
The path leading me here was not without toils, or bleak descensions.
Yet this jubilee I have gained...Read More

To know that again, the charade continues,with firstly the

Naked Beneath My Robe
Tossed into the stormy ocean
when life struck another blow
brined, devoid of all emotion
lost child from Land of Goshen
drowning in the ebb and flow
dragged to depths by undertow

Blind eyes were opened to the past
of stains, blemishes carried long
feint with sorrow, my...Read More

Premium Member It Tears Me Apart
Something is burrowing into my heart
surfacing daily it tears me apart.
And freedom dies in the wake of this thing
drowning in the hurt it’s likely to bring.

I awake every day to feel its pain
why I endure it is hard to explain.

The American Dream
The American Dream is dead indeed
A victim of American Greed
Trickle down they said we’d try
Then proceeded to suck us dry

Paying minimum wage even though it kills
And the middle class can’t pay their...Read More

Eternal Midnight
Eternal midnight fills the endless plain
Of reason lost where passion dares not go
And where absolving dreams must die or feign
Unnatural distress at winter’s blow. 

The eyelids of the wise are sown with grief
To save slow mankind from the truth of...Read More

An orphaned paradise where wounded feet
Must hymn the breath which gave it life and light
Despairs for harmonies which subtly meet
In whirlpools where bright genii wake to fight. 

Asleep along the foaming shore there lie
Two citadels whose strong foundations greet
A conscience...Read More

Today, I resolve to evolve
An evolution that puts an end to my revolving around the same problems
Today, I dissolve the fragments of my past resolve
As 2016 dawns, reality downs too
That twelve months lie in the shelves intact

Lies  told
  sometimes we can be so selfish,
  consumed with only our own needs,
  those deep inner feelings, desires, wishes
which as a result, cause us to cast a lie as seed.

Time: The Arsonist
Set it ablaze.
Within my temple that is boundless.
Set it ablaze.
My limitations which are groundless.
Set it ablaze,
The Phantom of our shadows. Soundless, in its measure.

Burning without flame.
Yet these ashes seem to linger.
Burning without Fame.
Or even lifting a finger.
Burning without blame.

What Has God Done

God placed me in a great nation...
gave me the free choice to succeed,

Ah, Love,
you come;
all confusion suddenly grows calm,
and all I thought within me dead
arises with new life.

I am enraptured,
surrounded by your divine presence;
eternity seems hushed and still,
and time and space suspended
before thy probing rays.

I cleanse my soul
in your absolving stream,

Premium Member Guardians of Forever
They guard lost gardens
Criss-cross forgotten rivers of solitude
All future seasons they rotate
Absolving rage with mute and gentle grace
Sweet angels
Blind to reason they spark rainbows
random, silent arcs that transform space.

They are constant, strange, eternal,
the very breath, and brain of God.
