Overcome

Wednesday, May 27, 2009
As lightening flashes over somber planes,
          as dawn breaks,
My soul crashes against the shore,
          my soul awakes.

My heart cries out for answers
                              for peace
                              for hope
oh God                   for love.
                    All I get is love...
          and hope...
and peace...

Answers elude me, same as the questions.
          As certain as I am about this,
                    I doubt.

Life crashes, flashes, breaks, dies.
The same my soul, but doesn't die.

The promise, the certainty, the God of all
I beg, I plead, I push, I claw
                    won't let go,
          won't leave me,
won't break.
                    Love.
          Hope.
Peace.


          The light shines in the darkness,
     but I do not understand it;
it overcomes me.

ditto... but only if that means I like it.

I read it a long time ago, I promise. I just didn't post until now.

So... now that I've read this post 15 times (because I've checked your blog that many times), I get a free pass on 15 blog posts that I miss, right?
