Keep Breathing

6 Comments

IMG_20180211_125713Take a deep breath in

Hold it for a moment

Now let it go slowly

Feel that?

You’re alive.

That may or may not excite you

As life has been a little shaky lately

Almost as if the solid rock you once stood on

Is melting ice, thanks to global warming!

You’re alive.

 That’s something, isn’t it?

It means you still have another chance

To allow life smack you in the face

Or run to the throne of grace.

Everyone dies someday

But for you, not today

So do me one favour, love

Keep breathing.

Lantern and Lamb

4 Comments

He was both the lantern and the lamb

He was the light

Clothed in a dusty frame

That still shone brightly

In spite of the darkness surrounding him.

I took you through the waters and you got drowned  

I took you through tests and trials and you couldn’t stand a day 

Because your eyes were off of me   More

Thick darkness enlightened me
I slept in the dark
Woke up in the dark More
