Technology IV

•December 30, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Pretty self explanatory one here.

.

we live in a society so hooked on technology

wired to a 24/7 IV of facebook and twitter

we can’t seem to live without these banalities

why do I care what you had for dinner

or what some so-called celebrity did last summer

and can someone please explain why cats are the cleanest thing most searched for

I can see the juxtaposition, but let’s have a revolution

pull out your TV IV, you won’t die

stop living through the lens of a camera, you’ll see more this way

you don’t need to know what they had for tea

or even what you had for that matter

and even videos of cats aren’t that important

so unplug yourself, put down the screen,

go outside, the sun on your face is far warmer than pc glow

and fresh coffee is a thousand times better than the instagram version

An Old Friend

•December 23, 2014 • Leave a Comment

I’ll leave this one for your imagination.

.

I had a visit from an old friend today

He didn’t need to visit, but he came anyway

He’s put his life on the line so many times

So that I could still be here, penning these lines

He landed on my arm with a soft sweet kiss

I admit the sight of him is one I didn’t miss

But seeing him sit, not caring of my past

That dear butterfly bought a sad sweet smile

Who is like the LORD

•December 16, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Last of the Christian poetry (at least for a while).

.

Who is like the LORD

Who else can save the dead

The broken

The self damned

Who else is called holy in every tongue

Of every tribe

In every nation

Who else is like the LORD

Forever unchanging

Forever faithful

Forever there

No matter who you are

Or what crap you’ve done

Who else is called LORD

FRIEND

DADDY

In the same sentence

No one else

Because no one else is like the LORD

Worthy

•December 9, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Another christian poem here (I was obviously in the mood for writing psalms at the time, still not up to recent stuff). I’ve hinted before that there’s overlap between my faith and my recovery, there definitely is. I’ll try write it up at some point if you guys want.

.

FATHER forgive me

I am not worthy to be alive

YOU should not have let me survive

I am not worthy

But

But

But YOU kept me alive

YOU saved me inside

There MUST be a reason

Because I am not worthy

But I will live for YOU

Because I am alive by YOU

Because YOU saved me from myself

YOU made me worthy

What a fool I was

•December 2, 2014 • Leave a Comment

As a look back at my old poetry would show you, I used to self harm, I’ve actually recovered now. Also, as I mentioned last week, I am a Christian.

.

What a fool I was

searching for salvation

in a razor’s cool kiss

seeking redemption

in scars

When I knew it was futile

a pointless mess

I know I can’t redeem myself

Can’t save myself

That’s where You stepped in

Giving me salvation

In a cross’s cruel embrace

On your flesh

Bringing redemption

In scars

Your Scars

Marring your perfect body

.

Look My Child.

•November 25, 2014 • Leave a Comment

For those of you who don’t know, I’m a Christian. This is one written from God’s perspective, still quite old poetry, so can’t remember what set me to write it.

.

Look my child

Do not worry

I am bigger

Than your every fear

Did I not say

“Ask and it shall be given

Seek and you shall find

Knock and the door will be opened”

Why do you worry?

I am on your side

I am your father

Your dad

Daddy

And I love you

And I care for you

Stop worrying

Stop fearing

I have you

I have everything

Look at me

Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

I am the everlasting God

The Creator of the heavens

And the earth

Do you not know

I never grow tired

Or weary

Did I not promise

I will lift you on wings

As with the eagles

I will make you run

And you will never grow weary

Is it not so?

Did I not promise you this?

Then why do you fear

Why do you worry.

Come to me my child

Find rest in me

I am here for you

Please take my hand

Let me help

I love you

More than you could ever understand

I love you

More than you will ever know

I am your daddy

And I love you.

Lost My Song

•November 18, 2014 • Leave a Comment

As it says.

.

I’ve stopped too long

Lost my song

Now grasping at straws

My writing full of flaws

The muse has fled

My words are lead

I’ve stopped too long

And lost my song.

.

Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
