Wisdom is like the rain--when it comes down
In drips or torrents, ignorance will drown.
There is no faith or truth in corporate crooks--
They'll feed you lies so they can cook the books.
Freedom dies in plantations of wage slaves.
This world is a place with five fools for each sage
And a book of lies for every truth-filled page.
after Emma Lew
The snide rich have one rule, and it's not recent:
"We have one life. Why spend it being decent?"
Hate shouts so loudly that none dare dispute it
Except Compassion, whose kiss can refute it.
The road snakes as we walk, winding and narrow.But when we look back, it's straight as an arrow.
Eyes see joy clearer after tasting tears
Like hearts grow stronger after facing fears.
Love sees the lover through forgiving glasses.
Without them, angels look like stupid asses.
Love is, no matter how harmonious,
A war that has three sides: you, me, and us.
Wisdom and freedom will both meet their doom
When even fools are too smart for the room.
Hypocrites who preach Christ is love will claim
That hatred's good when it's done in His name.
Yesterdays are like ex-loves who don't care:
My heart still tells me that there's something there.
Loneliness is a clingy ghost who haunts me
By telling me that no one worth me wants me.
We all wake up to ancient pain and sorrow
Telling us how to live our lives tomorrow.
Love is a flower, lush and undefiled,
That will not grow true unless it grows wild.
I tell myself the lies I need to live--But lie to me, and that I can't forgive.
Nothing is promised. Everything is granted.Life's only guarantee: we all get planted.
Let all the rivers in you overflow.Even what feels like poison helps you grow.
for Cresta Kruger
Three rules in life to always keep in mind:
Stay curious. Risk heartbreak. And be kind.
Fan-fiction Christ shills for the rich and greedy;
Canon Christ always helps the poor and needy.
Fan-fiction Christ says, "God favors the wealthy!"Canon Christ says, "All money is unhealthy."
Fan-fiction Christ is hellfire and damnation;
Canon Christ is forgiveness and salvation.
Canon Christ has a loving heart that's huge;
Fan-fiction Christ is Ebenezer Scrooge.
Canon Christ feeds all who come to his table;
Fan-fiction Christ-just those who wear His label.
Fan-fiction Christ sees threats to get rid of;
Canon Christ is the rebel who cries "Love!"
Fan-fiction Christ will kill to be adored;
Canon Christ breeds compassion with Love's sword.
Fan-fiction Christ condemns women and gays;
Canon Christ welcomes all of us always.
The good disciples worship what they've heard;
The bad adore the teacher, not the word.
Two things the birth of tyranny requires:
Mute those who tell the truth and praise the liars.
Life's sneakers love to walk the same old trail
That leads from new and fresh to old and stale.
