maybe you are reaching too high clutching at straws seeing the skies taking on board a little too much feeling everything too often just waiting, somehow, for something or someone to hold your hand and show you the way a reach that is beyond sight hands that held the straw, tight beyond the gazing grasp of wrought palm comes the evening sun for all that befall.
I don’t believe you need to have a religion or faith to understand what sin is. Sin is engrained in society so that the majority of people have heard of it. It is a term which means ‘an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.’ I suppose believing in the divine might mean you also believe in sin. There are those who believe in one or the other, but not both. But you cannot believe in God without believing in sin, and you cannot believe in sin without believing in God.

Power on whisked to the heavens by the hands of angels finding a cassette of reflections of many years into the future sound that echoed through time looking glass has me defined alive
Reckoning It is the time for life, for love and for freedom hearing you call my name across the still of the lake watching the eagle fly or the head of the snake devoured Breaker My arms are holding onto the ledge my eyes are deflecting the pain and the beast praying to God, 'how can this be?' my lonely existential anguish breaker of the ravishing illusions Isolation Cannot think, cannot heal all I want, is to feel love that you should have given I would not ask for more instead isolated wondering what more can be taken Reflection In the mirrors you are no longer a smiling face no longer content to live in pain acceptance of the truth one escape or way out ... and where were all you living beings ... and the sunlight on my darkest nights oh, 'just too busy, living for eternity' What Happened Next I am the wall that divides heaven and earth the soul who's million year adventure was built, verse by verse alone and content, seeing evil beings, repent I smile again, you see me strong so many people, have now long gone what happened next I was the best, you were the rest undying and no longer simplifying my strength is a rock the silent ticking, of the universal clock.
Have I been born into a world of rivers of blood the sea that crashes against the waves a long lost sought fraught ticking clock that rests near your side how painful has it been to continue to look inside amidst the passing of nature the growth and the rise of spring dwindling of winters pale gusts locked away in your safe box waiting for the sound that the bells shall chime at midnight where lost souls gather with the flocking birds that is not what I heard
Masculine power, upright tower your moans of humiliation are no roadblock on the path of the brave the soldiers and the knowledge seekers you don't spit on my tombstone I see the mirror image of ice translucent memory love is on my side I have seen all that there is to see, on the sinside when the thunder comes raging and bolts of electric shoot through spring air you have the air in the ere grooving night scene mass multitude machine you are the barrier beyond the fold fake Gucci handbags and laced down bottom ups sounds like a load of quarks
Every once in a while... claws drag down my back I pull the cloak from the rack ocean waves... roll back city skyline, turns black temptation, like a viscous attack clackety clack... there is no way back temptation, emptying its wholesome pack on you
Colour my soul with your etheric crayons paint my skin with eternal angelic wings caress thy crown with purple lavender
Romans 12:3 – “For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.”
It hertz like love at 5:28 in the afternoon. Scatter the roses on my bed. Spray the oils around our room.
Stay true to the heart and the mind. The green heart chakra that connects us with the green earth. Be assured, your existence is considerable. Have the courage to go on even in self reliance, stand in the dark days of adversary.
Pslam 46:10 – He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Be still, know that everything is energy. That you were born from energy, that you will transmute into a different energy upon departure.
Blue, the colour of forgiveness. My favourite colour. Forgiveness is not weakness. It is acceptance. It is to achieve a higher state of self love and care than a lot of other people. I have been there, I have forgiven. I have felt the reward and been blessed by angels for my actions. You can’t expect to reach the better state of existence without giving it a try. The hardest part is acceptance and then, forgiveness. There is no easy path. You were not born because it was easy. Quite the opposite. You are here because life is a challenging journey. You should never be ashamed of who you are or what you want in life. Good people know in their hearts, that they are good.
I can’t profess to have all the answers, or to be able to give you a lot of information. I cannot give you a lot because you simply have to learn or experience it for yourselves. To rely on others experiences and understanding wouldn’t be fair to yourself or make sense. One journey or life is not identical to another. In turn and time, you will come to realise your own destiny and meaning. Transformation as represented by the butterfly, from larvae to having wings. Just as a hero must take a vast journey to sleigh a great evil. Just as the angels are helping people everyday to get their wings. So too, you shall know in time what it means to fly for yourself.
Forgiveness doesn’t come easily. Although to forgive is to be more powerful, it does not absolve those impure of heart or mind of sin. Repentance is needed. You cannot be expected to forgive without repentance. I don’t think we as humans are expected to go this far, although it does and will continue to happen, because here on earth, there is some incredible people. Bad people supposedly forgiving their evil brothers of sin, are no more enlightened, as their gains and relations are founded on evil intentions.
On that point, time to end.
Luke 12:3-4 – “Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.“
Take care all the best.
On my knees Praying to God Praying so near All I can feel, fear Scared lost art Lingering lust on my tongue Cardboard cutout-heart... ... waiting for you becoming once again shot up the mountain begin pounding draining fear... ... beside me aside from me all that I see.
Yesterday is gone and I am longing, swam a sea a thousand times, bent my knee against the tide, decided that you were worth the time, because I said that you are mine. Weather globe boat, see the world, afloat, on my heart, and in my mind, I miss the times, we were getting by. Thunderstorm, cracked fence, come down, you could do with a rinse, at our door, longing for more. Where art thou, lovers embers embrace, lovers forever disgraced, universe full of stars, o, how we wonder, what you are. Missing, enchanting, longing for your call again, see you swim against the moon, oh, how sweet you are, until eternal doom, we swim again...
