The Launch Codes

The storm clouds of chaos

Grow ever stronger

Ever darker

 

Decency is an outlier

Restraint, compassion

Distant ideals

 

I used to laugh when they talked about the end of the world

Armageddon in our lifetime – yeah right

Yet this is no biblical instance

You may as well burn it

Some that claim to preach it, seem not to read it

Or maybe the words in theirs are different to the words in mine?

 

Is the world going to end?

Has humanity completely lost the plot?

Will our children have to learn how to survive a nuclear winter?

 

I know fear today like never before

Not of a personal attack

But a genuine fear

That the end is near

If the wrong person gets

The launch codes

Why can we not just have peace?

In this war ravaged planet

Most people just want to be peaceful

To get on with their lives, go to work, pay their bills

Maybe watch a game, drink a beer with a friend, hug their family

 

They didn’t ask for this, we don’t want this

The world is torn, society is stretched to it’s limits

As bombs drop on civilians and terrorists terrify with little recourse

All the while, politicians fight over who’s soul belongs to whom

 

Why can we not just have peace?

Why must chaos, hate & greed persist?

Why must we be constantly struggling to survive

What feels like world war 3, episode 6?

 

A Cold Feeling

A cold feeling
As numbness attempts to invade the heart
Perfect love feels distant
As if fading to black
Is this reality
Or some twisted fantasy

Are eyes open or closed
Rapturous chaos
Madness ensues
White noise like a swirling hurricane
Envelopes, overwhelms the senses
And then stop
.
.
Quiet

🙂
The search for hope begins anew

Confusion remains, as to what that even was

The only thing that remains, clearly

Is the light

And that light

Must

SHINE

Part the Darkness

Close your eyes
Place your hands together in front of your chest
Picture darkness in front of you
The darkness and chaos of this time of year
Whatever causes you pain make sure it’s in there
Stretch your arms out fully
Feel the darkness pressing against your arms
Now open your arms slowly
Part the darkness
Picture light in the distance bursting through
As you move the darkness allow the light to flood in
Now look carefully at the light
See, it is a star,  a once in a lifetime star
Underneath is a stable
In that stable a baby
That child is your king
He is the light of the world
Remember that this season
And enjoy your Christmas and advent
For what it truly means
Not lists or consumerism
But the celebration of the birth of Christ

Can’t Watch the News

As the chaos of the world moves closer & closer to home

I had no choice but to reengage & find out what was going on

As my heart breaks & my soul bleeds

I fear for my child & the world she is going to have to live in

Such unspeakable horrors

Everyday, in every country

It is enough to make you want to slump

Hide in as much protection as you can muster

Maybe the doomsdayers are onto something

Yet here I am, trying to be more

Struggling to find a place of higher consciousness

Hoping to make even a small impact

To bring some little beauty into such darkness

It would be so easy, so comfortable

To lose myself once again into myself

Open the bottle, plug back into the fantasy

Let the world pass me by

Leave the fight for light to someone who is less sensitive

Hole up & protect me & mine, be like everyone else

But I cannot, because I know there is more & I simply must have more

Either what I believe is true, or I need medication
