Today, I realized I have to make a choice
I can choose to let things get to me
I can choose to allow the sadness in my life to overtake me
Or I can choose to embrace the love and friendship that surround me

I choose to see the sun shine
I choose to hear the birds sing
I choose to love my friends
And to let them love me

I am Alive Free and Happy

No Rhyme

I have no rhyme today
I have no happiness
No joyful song

I have, once again
Destroyed what peace I knew
To what end, I cannot say

My duty, my curse
My head, aches with loss
In this a prison I have built

Even amongst so many
I am alone again
I have sent away my only comfort

I am the soul of delusion
The butt of some morbid joke
Somehow laughter escapes me

I have no rhyme today
I have tears
I am sorrow

There is an old saying "If you love something (Paraphrase someone), Set it free... If it comes back, it's yours, If it doesn't, it never was yours...." Sometimes, we have to let go. Holding on too tight hurts us and the one we love. Sometimes we have to come to a realization that love is not bondage but, freedom. Letting go does not mean that we do not love, it is infact the strongest proof of it.

He is Risen!

He is Risen! He is Risen!
All our sin has been forgiven
Glorious day of victory
Won by love’s sweet majesty

Let us always be grateful
Our Lord God has been faithful
For today and forever
Lift our hands up together

Sing out! Sing out!
Raise your voice and shout!
Life everlasting
No more sacrifice nor fasting

The price for us is paid
Our holiness is made
For us and our salvation
For every creed and every nation

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Today let us celebrate with one voice
The hope of man
Risen and triumphant again!

Death has been defeated
Evil’s thrall has retreated
Because of God’s perfect son
This battle has been won

Today is Easter Sunday. I sat here reflecting on what that means. I am no hypocrite; I am far from a perfect person. I do not expect to see perfection in others. I just wanted to give a voice of thanks, to the one who did die and rise perfectly for us and for our salvation. Through that sacrifice we are ALL made perfect and clean.

Little Deaths

In troubled times I often feared
And dreading the next shot
I closed my eyes and blocked my ears
But it availed me not

The night time came and shortly passed
The dawn a brand new day
Who’s golden smile and warm caress
Would guide me on my way

Sometimes the darkness dogs my heels
A threat to rein me in
Familiar as it might feel
I’m loath to let it in

I suffer all these little deaths
And somehow I survive
Because of all these tragedies
I know that I'm alive

As chaos ends there's ecstasy
A feeling so sublime
The things I learn come painfully
But I know they’re really mine
(And I'm all right...)
(Lord I’m all right…)

I know sometimes you’re overwhelmed
The pressure closing in
And often times it’s hard to tell
The sacred from the sin

But evil’s shadow slips away
When faced it runs and hides
Just make your choices everyday
Abandoning your pride

So trouble not your weary heart
And do not fear the pain
The tears will dry and then they start
To cleanse you like the rain

We suffer all these little deaths
And still we make it through
Rejoice in all our victories
Our faith in life renewed

We make a choice to overcome
And rise above it all
We only learn to climb again
Surviving past the fall
(We’re standing tall)
(Oh God so tall…)

Every day is a victory. We are the very purpose of creation and the perfection of evolution. Remember always that chaos will eventually yield to peace.
