PostSubject: Held in contempt of course   Sun Mar 17, 2013 8:55 am

Bursted in like a mighty wind
through a door ajar
filled a room with smoke
made many choke
fresh from out of the fire
britches still smouldering

Been at it for a good while
nothing changes...
pounding virtual pavements
kicking in make believe doors
pointing to pages
for others to see and know
a dogwood's deep roots
searching downward for a foundational foothold
no bedrock and unable to grow

Old embittered, frustrated, ineffectual and frozen
there is a significant difference between
having enemies through no fault of one's own
persecution in the name of The Lord
and making enemies of potential friends
deliberately by one's own actions

Crying to The Lord for the wrong deliverence
amongst friends, alienated now as enemies
bi-polar-eyed within your own perceptions
Justify an unwillingness to change,
defiant messenger gone deaf, dumb and blind.

Repentence literally means:
"to stop and go in another direction"
Hit enough brick walls
and it can result in brain damage
the kind that goes without detection
rationale...irrational now

Gifted writing, gifted speech,
fault finding,
brimming with wisdom and knowledge
yet unequipped to teach
the very same lessons espoused
beyond your own reach

Trying so hard to be something you're not
grasping for more than you can handle
and unable to handle
the abundance you've already been given
fatally flawed in a worldly sense
to desire to live beyond the G-d given
generously provided means

Turn around swim in another direction
head for 'see'
be grateful for those who have cared enough
to drag your head from out of the sand
those oh so many times before...
now go, give thanks and make peace

It's high tide at high noon
dorsal fin is dragging through sand again
roiling up bottom feeders,
floundering in the shallows
turn before the tide goes out
and return to the deep
quit yer' beachin'

In the death throes of final hurrahs
at others' expense
externalizing what needs to be addressed internally
manifesting in a self delusion of martyrdom
is actually the enemy within
passing brick by brick...
the walls to your own prison

WAKE UP...
you are required and needed
don't allow your pride
to let this message go unheeded.

"I cannot rely on you to believe me,
so i have to depend on myself.
And if i am not to be seen as insane,
then i have to move me...
from you
."-Father John Paul
