Heaven and Hell

Where is heaven, where is hell, who says they’re far away from you?
Heaven and hell are within the people. Angels and demons are within us too.
When our conscience is overthrown by the deadly sins,
The hellfire of self-repentance burns within us...

Blood and Fire

Peaceful protest feels like begging

Those with power don't see our humanity

To them we are things to be used and abused

To them we are the worms on the street

Nonviolence feels humiliating

And the experts somehow call it victory

Infinitely

Life is so infinitely small

That's what makes it beautiful

I don't know most things but I know this for sure

Tomorrow I'll die

Deny Yourself, But

Love is not a choice
It's what we're made of
And made by
And what we're for
And what we are
And what we're
A part of
And what we need
And inherently want

Air

You are life

You are love

You are the wind

Over the grass

On the praries

You are light

You are dawn

You are the sky

In the spring

The horizon

You are kind

You are good

And I'm sorry

I never was the mother you needed me to be
