A reflection from a few years ago. Why the expression of despair? What purpose is there besides basking in the chemicals of your brain? Don’t deny it. You enjoy the despair; it makes you feel like the center of a cosmic tragedy, the misunderstood and noble hero of unimaginable agony of soul. Because in those... Continue Reading →

Will there be Minor Chords in Heaven?

This beautiful, captivating ache. Is it wrong? Perhaps, in this world, the Minor and the Major have been severed and estranged. Perhaps, one day, they will no longer be two but shall become one flesh. Longing and satisfaction, eternally wed, the fire of their love burning brighter every moment. The longing made deeper, the satisfaction... Continue Reading →

O Peaceful Path

O peaceful path of wisdom, why do I find you so distrustful? Why is it that though convinced of your goodness, I am reluctant to follow you. I rather choose to trust my natural instincts toward the destructive path of folly. I know that way leads to utter ruin in the midst of the assembled... Continue Reading →

For I do not feel. What is experienced is nothing... Continue Reading →

Rage, My Soul.

Rage, my soul, against your God. By divine denial, sinful hope deferred. Weep, my soul, for your ignorance. Sin deferred is joy obtained. Cling, my soul, to Christ of the cross, For life, for love, for joy. Sing, my soul, of the Lamb who was slain, For ten thousand eternities, his grace unending.

Soldiers of the Heart

Consider all of your innermost desires. Put them forward, enumerate them. Now give them shape, mold them into persons, assign them wills and personality. Let them breathe and move, determine and act.  Fit them with armor, equip them with weapons of war, bestow them with honor as soldiers, let them be brave and resolved in... Continue Reading →

Look Beyond

O Unhindered Worm, who observe your own crawling and posit yourself free, Look to the eagle in the sky, And consider your confinement. O Limitless Droplet, who observe your own dimensions and posit yourself vast, Look to the oceans of the world, And consider your finitude. O Thunderous Ant, who observe your own burdens and...

Til Morning Comes

Dear thoughts, Go to sleep once again. I know you’re restless and burning for answers but I am not wise enough to give you reply. Slumber for yet another day. I know you’re weary of your cage of ignorance but I have no strength to wrestle and tame. Lay your head down and rest. I... Continue Reading →
