We had a sub when I was in nineth grade her name was Runs With Wolves, I don’t know why she occasionally appears in my thoughts, I think it’s because she’s the first person I ever met, that wasn’t ashamed to be called crazy . I mean she was a sub for junior high students and when she introduced herself she told us her entire story. She had a husband that she left after years of being beat. I don’t blame her for leaving. She should of never stayed. She was in the process of changing her name back to her maiden and its when she thought, honestly I don’t know what she thought, she must of thought ‘I’m not afraid anymore.’ But I think anyone who runs is afraid, afraid of much more then they are willing to admit. .

The reason I live holy isn’t just because I’m told to by God. It’s because it’s a better life.

You Call This Weather



Don’t give me some
weak-ass storm
let the wind
make the brick wall
howl in pain
and the windows sag
or don’t bother my night
I’m too busy
weighing essentials
in my tired hands
so bear my longing
away from me
or blow it close
come on stupid life
and give me what I want
so I can be happy already.

Not everything we believe in is always correct people act on what they believe in people make mistakes and do stupid things because what they believed in failed them. Yes everyone suffers from hypocrisy its a very contagious illness but hypocrisy has nothing to do with what I’m saying. I believe what your trynna say is all Christians are hipocrites, your probably right, but what I’m trynna say is, if I believe Christ is alive and He has saved me from me, then I am going to give Him the rest of me. Cause and effect, lets step out of the religious box for a second, if you believe that giving your kids everything they need will make them happy you are going to give them everything. If you believe that fire is going to burn you, you won’t go near. If you believe you can swim but you’ve never stepped foot in a pool your whole life, you are going to drowned. Let’s step back in to the religious bubble even if Christ died on the cross and never rose again and there is no hell or heaven I still choose to believe, even if its wrong I’ll always believe because the way He saved me is not a lie, even if everything else is. One more thing just cause someone says they believe doesn’t mean they believe, people tend to lie when their pride starts choking them.

Everything is dying all around, and yet here, it seems you’ve only begun to come alive. Time seems to stand still around here, I can’t tell whether the season started late this year, but its here and I can’t tell how long its been since the last time I felt your sweet embrace. You’ve come alive in the midst of all this death and somehow your the sweetest thing, my new beginning. Where were you, where have you been I’ve walked through this desert long enough to know it as my own. I lost track of time, I lost my mind, forgot which way was North, gave up on where I was going. Your embrace was my sweetest nightmare, my hope, and my haunting. I had given up and suddenly here you are my Desert Storm.

I found everything
I’d ever lost
discovering there
a home beyond
the world’s lies

And saw everything
I’d ever need
or desire to be
behind the sorrow
in your eyes

You got so busy, you lost track of time too late did you realize how big they’d gotten, you wanted them to have everything you never had but all they ever needed was you. You wasted all your time and strength on the things that pass away, you forgot that all we need is that which lasts, love. You…

You got so busy, you lost track of time too late did you realize how big they’d gotten, you wanted them to have everything you never had but all they ever needed was you. You wasted all your time and strength on the things that pass away, you forgot that all we need is that which lasts, love. You swore you’d never let them suffer the way you did you’d never let them hate the way you did but have you ever realized we turn into the things we hate most. We wasted too much time on what should of happened on what we could of done. I’m tired of wasting the little time God has given me with you. I’m tired and all I want to do is lay in your arms and ask you questions about the stars and the pyramids. You were always my super hero daddy, no matter how much time we wasted you were always the my super hero.

I’ve been more than tired
for quite a while
could lay me down to die
but that’s not my style

Not while I’ve yet one more Hallelujah

And I’m not proud of
where I’ve been
yet while the light
still shines within

I will not stop crying Hallelujah

Now as the cold eternal

shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”

Perhaps as we idly stare at the stars
part of us embraces who and what we are
and where we once were, hoping to see
where we again may one day be
we are children of the wandering stars
ever seeking a home quite long ago ours
