    JUDGEMENT

    Judgement
    Only breeds
    Contempt of humanity.

    FAITH SONG

    The darkness crept in,
    like a thief in the night,
    looming over my faith,
    snatching at the cradle.

    Stealing away the tune,
    maiming my faith song,
    somehow to the words,
    by my nails I clung on.

    Wounded and doubting,
    I continued humming,
    hoping my stolen property,
    would be returned to me.

    This never happened,
    instead the unexpected,
    a new tune, more epic,
    restored my faith to me.

    DARK FIRE

    A moth to your flame,
    seduced by your airs,
    fooled by your promises,
    incinerated entirely,
    by your dark fire soul.

    Time
    can
    not
    heal
    what
    we
    conceal.

    ALL OR NOTHING

    Journeying southward,
    train ride never ending,
    burgeoning sobriety,
    favourite song playing...

    All or nothing.

    Stepping again forward,
    the doors of a new corps,
    my shame plagued soul,
    eyes fixed to the floor.

    All or nothing.

    Existential my calamity,
    recovery road still rocky,
    but suddenly I had certainty,
    a new found Church family.

    All or nothing.

    Everytime I fought against,
    God's love broke through,
    manifested in the hearts,
    of everyone of you.

    All or nothing.

    When I thought I had it all,
    my soul was barren, nothing,
    coming here with nothing,
    finding God again, everything.

    All or nothing.

    Steadfast in my recovery,
    transformation my blessing,
    fire burning inside me,
    distant now the memory...

    Journeying southward,
    train ride never ending,
    burgeoning sobriety,
    favourite song playing...

    All or nothing.

    CRASH

    Smoke curling from her lips,
    she sits contemplative,
    wreckage strewn all around.

    Twisted metal, cracked glass,
    waiting for the distant sirens,
    already she knows too late.

    Watching the setting sun,
    cast long shadows on the scene,
    another car slows as it passes.

    But neither they nor the sun,
    pause from carrying on,
    life lost but living goes on.

    JOURNEY

    The further my travels have
    taken me away from myself,
    the closer I've come to finding
    my God given destination.

    SYNERGY

    Your stranded soul,
    a discarded feather,
    lost hope, all alone.

    Darling let me be,
    the steady breeze,
    lifting your spirit free.

    Together we will be,
    in natural synergy,
    for without you...

    There's no purpose to me.

    NOWHERE TO CALL HOME

    Barefooted as your soul,
    beard wild like your rage.

    Nowhere to call home.

    Torn spirit, shirt matching,
    skin cracking, hope lacking.

    Nowhere to call home.

    I knew you friend before,
    before the devil took hold.

    Please I pray dear Lord,
    my heart is also breaking.

    May this be the last night,
    in the broken dark you sit.

    With nowhere to call home.
