and try to destroy you from off the earth.

one way to succeed in life
With  few exceptions,
There is only one way to succeed in life,
Which is, to go through the right hoops,
At the right time,
At the right speed for each hoop.

Of course you could pay someone else to go through them for you,

The World wants to tax the church

that appears corrupt 

Granted a lot of ministers

follow their own paths of greed
satisfy their own desires

But the money the Church takes

A cold winter would lift it
Kiss her lips passionately to

Good and Evil can never co-exist

Light of the Devil's Chord - Day 39

That whisper of the night before struck me powerfully, 
It affected me more than I intended to admit
Hades—stupid Hades, a follower, loyal enough—
But nothing to compare with the suicidal, lovely
Red glow of Death’s betrayal— and to ME!...Read More

Day 38

Pugnaciousness set aside, 
Phantasmal was the anticipation, 
Possessing each moment
Some shutter fell over him
He knew, at least, that he had me 
He knew that I cared enough
Ours together, in his hands and mine,
I gave him the means to perceive

Stay firm in the Promise

Let not the church, nor the people, 
Let not the songs, nor the steeple. 
Cause my firm faith or love to flee, 
For my spirit remains in thee.

Or listen to the birds...Read More

The Makers of Gods
Know that we are
not only made by
God, but we are
makers of gods;
the technology
we worship—the
bible of tables
(our elements);
we cook and
stew; we homogenize
and consume—drinking
the fluid bodies of 
eternity. Be as wise
of what goes into
your mouth, as well
as what comes out…
we excrete only

Lets lay party/person aside.

If god was the singularity

If I was God
