Warmed by Truth
The fate of the world
slowly turns while tilting
closer to ultimate misfortune
into darkness
setting on the hearts
of a cold lost people
desiring to love
unable to feel


living around a world
whose passions aren’t pure
tainted over time
through eyes un-opened
hearts scared to try
minds scared to believe
set upon hollow hope
never will


the message has come
meeting people with frozen hearts
warmed by the hearth of truth
slowly warmth of love
bring strength
that causes them to know
the one who sent

his message

Into the Night
slowly, softly the sunlight sets
into twilight stretching thin
as hours of anticipation
leave minutes of serenity
with lights gently glistening
across the Garonne

clouds so sparse, dotted, thin
barley noticeable, gentle wind
distant roar of water falling
stars slowly trace the sky
moments of worry pass away

time should wait, moment long
wait until my soul rest
days gone wry seagulls fly

into the night

that forgot to delay

6/14/04 / toulouse, france

broken children stumble drunk,
loosing step while river runs
spiritually deserted, dark souls
admire past accomplishments
their beautiful city
masking ugly lost lives
still children stumble drunk
not knowing their father
whose tears flow down
raining upon this town
they don umbrellas
avoiding living water
extinguishing lights, living blind
in darkness
