Bursting Seams

Behind the laughter
And the nonchalant spark
Temptation still lingers
A deep secret in the dark

Empty Shells

A good body doesn't mean a healthy body
nor a beautiful smile a beautiful heart
A lot of riches doesn't mean a lot of happiness
nor do kind words mean kind deeds

What matters most is the latters
the inners over the outers
For there we find true substance
unlike the empty shells that crack beneath us

BONE (Book of New Encounters) Entry - Sunday 14/11/2010

Walked through the cemetery and seeing all the stories buried there, many having lived a life shorter than I. I can't help but wonder: Did they expect this? Did they see their death coming? Did their sixth sense alert them that their death was around the corner, thus to prepare? These, & many more questions have driven me to two thoughts on life:
1. Honor and respect God, and follow His will and direction for your purpose on earth. Be after God's own heart, and pour yourself onto this earth. When your time to transition shall arrive, you will be ready and will die empty, having fully poured yourself and emptied your cup into this earth. You will have stamped yourself and made a difference in people's hearts; isn't that what life is about anyway?
2. Since you're already here, you might as well give everything you care about your all, you might as well follow the dreams God placed in you. Live like a child; forgive and let live. Allow yourself wild abandon. Burn your ships as you pursue your dreams, for there lies your purpose, and fullness of joy. Live in the NOW; don't spend most of your time working too hard to be a "future you" that so much passes you by; live in the moment and absorb life. Truly live, enjoy the experience. And isn't that why we were placed here in the first place?

Helping Hands

To calm her nerves
she pulls up her skirt
To give a show
then get some dough
To buy a fix
then feed her kids
Her world full of spins
world full of sins

She can't shake loose
off the junkie noose
The only friends she's got
are a pimp and harlot
Just hold her hand
help her find the path
For she is God's image
placed on this earth
