Paralytic thoughts assault the conscious mind. I hit my knees and toss some hope out into space. I’m hurting for a blessing and dying for a miracle. I stare at the road directly ahead and wonder, with senseless abandon, can I make it through the sinkhole ridden landscape and land on solid ground once more? A man of countless words arranged in a tapestry of pain and disappointment, just praying to reclaim his smile. I would sacrifice what little I have and more for a spot of light to appear on this desolate horizon.
Let the sea rage around me. Let the sky spit an ocean upon my head. Let the pain seperate the mind from what I’ve done. Let the mountains erupt in glorious fiery judgment. Bash the flesh against the bone. Rake my soul over the embers of a former life. Melt away the impurities. Beat me stronger… BEAT ME STRONGER! Let the sting leave me gasping in enlightened agony. Let it humble me and put me low. Above all else… at the end… just let it leave me be.
And now I’m dancing for rain. And now I’m flowing down. And now I’m reaching deeper. And now I’m pushing forward. And now I’m tuning out. And now I’m fading in. And now I’m dripping dreams. And now I’m bleeding truth. And now I’m gripping something. And now I’ll never let go. And now I’m constructing castles. And now I’m deconstructing fortresses. And now I’m a saint. And now I’m a sinner. And now I’m a King. And now I’m a God. And now I’m a man. And now I’m an insect. And now I’m eternal.
