My Attempt at Being Outspoken.

Forever I am urging you
to understand the never ending attempt
to overcome the impression of an illness
that makes others think you're insane.

Still every now and then in this big city,
I'll see a man on the street talking to himself,
and be incredibly thankful for having
the strength, ability, and support
to over come such a sickness.

For all the suffering,
there is an opportunity
to come forward and demand
the treatment you deserve.

There's someone out there to help you speak
when you can't speak for yourself,
and there's a world waiting for you
to come forward and become part of it once again,
because your ailment doesn't exactly define you.

Abduction Anomaly.

The god you thought you knew
and held deep inside of you,
has broken into pieces.

He's shattered into little lies
of a picture torn into tiny messages
that completely ignore the intention
of a martyr who died,

NOT to persecute you
but to SAVE you.

Still, so many take little tidbits
from a book they've never bothered
to read to the point of understanding
and blow them up into proportions
that I know God never intended.

I'm not here to tell you what you see
and hear is a distortion of the truth.

That's a truth you already know.

I'm only here to show you what
God has given me,

with the hope that it's an impression
great enough to impact you,
and not a tiny tidbit of something
no one will ever understand.

Give me Red, and Grey, and Green, and Yellow. (Disappointment)

Give me all the ugly colors that combine
together to be what anger gives you,
and still, this is all I'll ever have to say.

My message to the world
would go something like this;

Just because things are done beyond your understanding,
doesn't mean that they've been done without reason.

The balance in life is constantly being upset by people
who can't seem to decide if they're for you or against you.

While some people feel like free entities,
you're trapped within the limitations of your small mind.

Sure, we all suffer from sadness,
but don't go asking God why you're so depressed,

when you should be asking yourself,
"How can I be happy?" Instead.

How Can I Ever Win in Any Way?

Why does it matter so much that our home isn't exactly
the place of perfection that we pictured it to be?

I know that I can't always complete you,
but believe me, I try.
So please understand that I'm doing the best I can,
and I'm sorry if I'm not exactly
what you expected me to be.

So that in the times when it's all confusing and complicating,
maybe instead of complaining,
we can just absorb it in as it really is.

Alright, and instead of swearing a personal grudge against myself
I could just throw my hands in the air and wave the white flag.

I give up!
I give up!

Some struggles are worth surrendering.

You Don't Need a Confessional

What do you do
when all your saints are liars?

Or when your priest
is a hallway for hate to pass through?

How could you ever
let a person create
so much power for himself,
only to allow him
to warp the minds
of the ones who are
supposed to be following god,
but instead are mindlessly following nothing. . .
but a man in a costume.

How is it that among
all of the hypocrisies,
we fail to see that the control
held over our human beliefs,
is the biggest one of all?

When will it be time to kill the cult
and let the truth live loudly?

It's time to let you know that your salvation
doesn't lie in the hands of a few hail Marys.

No, instead,
it sits quietly
in the hearts that accept and trust
what they know to be personally true.

It doesn't push you to give up your free will.

it makes you free.
