The mess that everything is in is going to need a few Gods to get it right.

Seems we spent too much time talking and not enough doing something


I can finally call You God again

For years this word
Stirred fear and conflict in me
Sometimes even anger

Judgment, intolerance, ignorance
Tainted the innocence
Of letters and language

But words are not meaning
And You are
Nameless

I sense you
In matter
And space between forms

Tonight I recognize you
In the early evening sky -
Your fingers are high clouds
Painting new shades of pink and red

You spring to life on the mountain ridge
In young grasses between the boulders
In the wide-eyes of the grazing deer
In a welcome song of rain
Kissing our parched earth

I whisper thanks for your beauty

And find you in the quiet
When thought
Finally
Stills

I am empty
And also full

You are part of me
And them
And us

A Trinity
Beyond
Words


I’m gonna shout out
Tell the world to stand and pray
Not in silence
But with voices that are raised
Crush resistance fight all the way
Start the revolution
BUT NOT TODAY

I will join hands
With those who feel the same
Not accept the brush off
From those who stand unphased
Scream out for my values
Take the hardest way
Do it all in freedoms name
BUT NOT TODAY

Let me be a leader
Take the masses as I rise
Against the worlds injustice
And the worthless words and lies
Stand against authority
Take the hardest days
Let them know we’re staying firm
BUT NOT TODAY

People are you ready
To forsake the things you love
Cross the line no going back
Chase answers that are tough
Pull down all the barriers
Win all the things you crave
Crush all the rejection
BUT NOT TODAY
