In modern society we no longer see the reality
but rather the depravity of our own catastrophe.

We walk alongside undead robots
that demand handheld computers.
Never speaking a word
Never touching another

We've replaced authenticity with emojis.
We've given our energy to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
We've lost hold of all reality for a world of seeming perfection,
and we are surprised when reality disappoints us by comparison.

"Why would I explain it to you
when I can just post it online
and you can read it if you want to?"

"Why would I waist my time to visit you
when I can just text you with emojis
and tell you how I'm doing?"

These are the influences upon modern society:
To give up love, compassion, and relationships
and replace them with fallacies, indifference, and "followers."

Fall Leaves

Fall leaves
from the trees
full of color
I’m without another

As fall leaves
my hopes and dreams
join the brown
as they fall on the ground.

As fall leaves

The Lover's Last

The days my mind
wanders into bliss
are the days I find
transcendent joy

The image of you
fills my heart
until my chest is
too full to breathe

The touch of your hand
sends chills through me
until I can no longer
bear to stand

Your grip on my heart
is unwavering
and you have led me
far from safety

My tomb shall read:
"Here lies the Lover
who loved until
her last breath"

What it will not say
is my Lover took
my breath away.

A World of Brokenness

People listen like megaphones
distracted by their telephones

I'm waiting to participate
thinking how to articulate
the feeling of emptiness 
I see in all this brokenness

The world spins round
and people make all these sounds
but when it comes down to it
all I hear is bull shit

People are empty, broken and lost
they turn to drugs, money, and alcohol
but there's a great cost

Why can't they see you?
Do they not know you're there?
Blind to your clues
as they sit their confused

It lies so heavily on my shoulders
The weight crushing down on me
I put it all on myself to try for credit
But all I got is criticism

When I try, I fail
When I trust, He succeeds

Let it not be me, but Him through me
For His ways are best
My ways are a mess

Broken Mirror

I am a broken mirror
with a distorted reflection
of the Son that shines on me.
I want the world to see but
I am a broken mirror.

You expect me to portray this image
but you don't stop and realize
that I am broken and shattered

just like you.

We are all broken mirrors.

The Word

In the beginning was the Word -- singular.
He spoke, with a word, everything into existence. 
With a word He brings down armies;
with a word the dead are raised.

So why do we waist words?
When with only one
we have that same power.
Because the God that spoke those words
now lives in me

Weeping Willow

Like a weeping willow
she often sways in the wind
but as she sways
she weeps for what she has lost

But through her wavering 

her beauty shines through
because after each storm
her branches come to rest

for she is firmly rooted

in the soil of God, and
will never be uprooted.

Today's John 3:16

People run through life
Technology in hand
They don't stop for a minute
Not even to dust off the sand

They work, work, work
And take, take, take
But never stop to give

For if they slowed down
Even for a moment
They would see the emptiness
Their pretend lives would shatter
And as ashes it would scatter

But for God so loved the world,
That he gave his one and only son
That whoever believes in him
Shall not:
Feel meaningless, hopeless, or empty;
Run aimlessly through life;
Always feel restless, pain, and strife
And most of all, when it comes to the end of days,
They will not perish,
But instead have eternal life

My One

This sounds best as a audio poem so try reading it out loud or mumbling it to yourself. It is a little different than most of my stuff, so I hope you like it!

My life is a confusion of chosin' and losin'
tryin' to be a new one, a real one, a clean one.
All for the One who loves, who fights, who dies,
who comes back to life.

How can I compare?
Who even cares how I live my affairs?
I know he is there, I know he cares, he shares
my pain, my strain, as the everlasting crane
lifts to the cliffs the sinners
who think they can stay the way they behave.
They fall down and pound the ground
as they strive in their meaningless lives.
The ground shakes and quakes for us to awake
to the sight of the light at the end of the night.

How can we wait?
How can we stay?
How can we be at bay?

How abrupt this corrupt world will erupt
ashes falling, masses stalling, he is calling


Those who believe are relieved to leave
the world as it swirls and curls
to escape the wrath and its aftermath.
The battle ensues, evil peruses, but evil pays dues
to the one I choose

"It is finished."

Listen to the silence as it rings
louder than the choir sings.
The battle is won, we are one, he is one.
We sing our praise amazed with our gaze
fixed upon the throne. Not a moan or a groan

Joy consumes, peace resumes, love peruses.
We have won as one to be one with The One,
my One.
