Blood & Tears Shed

Posted by E. D. on October 6, 2015 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

When I close my eyes,

I can hear the music in the wind

It sings of adventure and excitement,

danger and tribulation...

Will you share in this adventure?

Have the stars as a ceiling

and the grass as your bed?

Will you share in the blood and tears shed?

I feel a stirring in my soul:

A tug from beyond my screen and books.

Something real is waiting to challenge me

Deeper than I've yet looked.

My hand aches for a sword!

Lessons Learned

'When life gives you lemons...'

Yeah, we've heard it before

I'm tired of lemonade

But I've learned from my sores

When life gets colder

And I'm hit harder

If work gets rougher

Or just takes longer

My armor gets thicker

calluses get rougher

My muscles get bigger

I'm mentally tougher

Seems like I'm always fighting

Just waiting for release

From the worry, day and night

I'm still searching for peace

I want to be free

Can You break these chains?

Relieve this pain?

Erase the blame?

Quell these flames?

Sometimes I can't see

The fullness of Your Grace

So I run away

Hide my face

Wallow in shame

Don't I deserve the pain?

Can I return again?

I wanna change,

but I'm afraid

I'll just remain

and stagnate

Breathe your life into me!

Tear away the apathy!

Make me the man I should be

1 Corinthians 13:11

Dropping rocks

Into my little pond

To distort the surface

You can't see underneath

There's really nothing left

Like a bookless shelf

But there's life after death

So much more I can be

Put the child away

Stand tall in his place

Time to make some changes

And embrace the new me

We define our names

Write out these pages

Establish today's pace

Doesn't matter who sees

Here I stand

gazing at the masks around me:

'I'm a nice person, I swear!

And I really do care!'

So go the personal advertisements,

A veritable wall of such disguises.

I want to know and be known

To learn, teach, and show

But the masquerade moves on

In search of those impressed

By the masks they have donned

Leaving me perplexed

And standing
