Dare.



+

"Life is a daring adventure or nothing.  Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.

"Be Safe"? or Be Free.

 

            

 "Those who would give up their freedom for safety deserve neither freedom nor safety."

-Benjamin Franklin

+

A world obsessed with safety from sickness has traded one sickness for another.  The Boogeyman from whom we're running has beaten us already.  We were not put on this planet to "stay safe" but rather to Live.

To stop living so you won't die

 (or get the sniffles if we call it what it is) 

Is very fuzzy math indeed.

"Be safe", the seemingly innocuous yet deadly propaganda is killing our country, our livelihood, our humanity as we know it, exactly what the engineers of this "crisis" intended.

So the next time someone tells you "Be safe", respond with "Be Free"

If we make freedom our aim, safety is possible;

If we make safety our aim, we'll end up with neither.

Wind

 


+

Blow through me
Again, my Love,
Your instrument,
Your flute

Make me
make music again...

Play me for the world
One last beautiful song
That turns their mourning
Into Dance

The Third Day IS Coming...

 



+

The crowd had dissipated
With the disciples hopes
Thousands of had-been believers
Up in smoke
The overflowing stadium emptied
The over-rated throngs withdrew
The jig was up
Game Over...

... Thus Began
The eternal three days,
As most Real stories do,
In Ashes

And in the Still Small Voice of the second day,
In that comparative silence,
Destiny had been decided
Despite appearances

For Beauty was brewing
About to bloom and burst forth
Unbeknownst to any
Unwitnessed by any
Save one...

... The Summit of Time
The Sublime Moment
Would not be seen by millions
But by Mary,
A hooker turned fisher of men
(Gotta love God's sense of irony,
Redemption in a nutshell right there)
God would wait
Till the masses had melted away
To whisper His secret to one

No fanfare
No pretense
(Truth needs not these fineries)
But in an atmosphere of
Utter Anticlimax
And the anonymity of the grave,
The stone would roll away....

Just because the crowd is gone,
The lights are turned off,
The door is locked
-tell-tale signs of the second day-
Don't suppose the show is over...

...It may not even have begun.

+

"My ways are higher than your ways,
My thoughts are higher than your thoughts...
Though the vision tarries, wait for it, it will surely come...
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for peace and not evil, to prosper you, not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
-Isaiah 55:9, Habakkuk 2:3, Jeremiah 29:11

Barabbus


      


"This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you, 
that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses,
Now choose life"
-Deuteronomy 30:19

+

Poised on the brink of Choice:

Life or Death
Birthright or Bowl of soup
Blessing or Curse

Hanging in the balance...

...Heaven halts and holds its breath
As again the familiar scene plays out
Man wielding the Fearsome Weapon of Free Will

The consequences of which
Have been unleashed
Unmercifully
onto
Mankind,

A piece of fruit from a forbidden tree
A road not taken
An Ishmael

The terrible tension
The tears of Time Immemorial
The Anguished Cry

The worlds watch, 
Weeping
While with a glad hand
We forfeit freedom
And once again
Choose
Barabbas

+

"Choose this day whom you will serve."

Shore

 


+

You've always given me
Wherewith to land,
Lily pads lined up
Across this Red Sea...

"Partings"? ...I suppose,
But more often "Leapings"...
Less of Faith,
More often of the Frog variety...

Leap after Leap
After longing Leap...

It's been so So long,
Since
I've known
Shore.....

+

Build me a boat...

 


+

Heal my heart
Sew the sails
Patch its hull
Sturdy as steel...

Speak to the storm,
"Peace, Be Still."
Trade me a course
For the chaos...

Make the Water not so Wide
Make the Beast
Shine with Beauty again

And paint on her helm 
the lovely name,

now far away,

and too long

 forgotten...

Domestic Terrorists' Lives Don't Matter




+


 No,

They are not "Protestors"

(That soft sell with which we've disguised those

Declaring war on our country from within)


Call it what it is.


They are Domestic Terrorists

Who have hijacked our lives

And all we hold dear.


Time to treat them as such,

Because OUR lives DO matter.

I am David's stone

Which,
Held by The Son of David,

Will bring down
Giants.

"do not despise the day of small things."
-zechariah 4:10

Nothing new under the sun



 "When I consider the weakness, the folly, The pride, the vanity, the selfishness, the artifice, the low craft and meaning cunning, the want of principle, the avarice, the unbounded ambition, the unfeeling Cruelty of a majority of those who are allowed influence; 

And on the other hand, the stupidity with which the more numerous multitude, not only become their Dupes, but even love to be taken in by their tricks: I feel a stronger disposition to weep at their destiny, than to laugh at their folly...What Servile Mimicks they are."

-John Adams, 11/15/1813

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

Unlikely Wombs

 


+

Strange that Beauty's Birthplace
Should be Ashes
Like so many other belied beginnings...

Diamonds from Coal
Dawn from Dark
Life from Death...

Unlikely Wombs

Ashes
Coal
Dark...

Death...

Trademark paradox of Providence
Sleight of Heaven's Hand
These cocoons our rite of passage

The price we pay
for
Wings...

"They who sow in tears
Shall reap in Joy..."

Anti-terrorism is not Racism


+

 To stand against this declaration of war on the United States of America is not "racist" 

It's Anti-terrorist.

 Domestic terrorists (glibly called "protestors" by an unconscionable media) have played the race card in order to gag anyone who would stand against the siege on our country and liberties, bullying everyone with the threat of being labeled "racist" so that no one dare lift a hand against this attack.

 You can subdue an entire country without anyone raising a hand to stop you if you just make it a race issue.

What if it were a bunch of women burning down our cities, looting our neighborhoods, terrorizing our citizens, and calling you "sexist" if you tried to stop them?  We would find that ludicrous in the extreme and the declaration of war would have been dealt with on day one.

We have spent enough time on the defense allowing our country to be decimated and our way of life dismantled by disenfranchised people willing to enslave themselves to any cause that comes along.

Time to stand for your country, 

while you still have a country to stand for.

Racist?




Our country is being Repeatedly Raped 
And we the victims 
Have been shamed into silence with the label "Racist"

If we resist these Rapists, we are Racist

Very fuzzy math indeed

Treason



+

We've Been Hijacked
Held Hostage
Had our Cities Burned 
Our Citizens Terrorized
 Our Infrastructure Attacked
 Our Flag Desecrated 
Our History Raped
 Our Officers Murdered
 Our streets Overrun with Crimes against Humanity 
and 
Declarations of War

And We've Finally Brought The Terrorists To Justice.

--oh, no, wait, scratch that--

We've Given These Terrorists A Holiday
We've Met The Hijackers Demands
We've Apologized To Our Captors
For Being Such Ungrateful Hostages.

We've Handed over our lunch money
To the bully in the schoolyard,
And taken up a collection for more.

And while every C-cup who can read a script 
(a.k.a. "newscasters") 
pimps herself out to these perpetrators,
We've bent over,
Grabbed our ankles,
And thanked these criminals for the privilege.

Fancy that, America.
Both Villain and Victim
Guilty
Of
Treason.

"Jesus wept."

Bounced.



+

 So now we are offering counterfeit meaning to the masses 

No self sacrifice required,
 No self transcendence necessary,
 Take a trip around the board, collect $200, and bonus, avoid jail completely.

 This beautiful rubber check with 
"Your Life Matters
written convincingly in the memo,
Paid to you, the gullible recipient.

Not because you worked for it,
Not because you've ever done anything that remotely matters,
Not because you made a positive impact in another's life,
 Nope, no self-sacrifice required whatsoever.

You can sit on your butt, 
or, if you like,
March aimlessly down the street,
 Setting things on fire 
and smashing up others' property 
(something an unintelligent three-year-old could manage, by the way)

 And still, 
Your life gets to matter.

Catching on yet?
(even that three-year-old would get it at this point)

You've been played,  America. 

Seems BLM's throwaway poster child
was well-chosen;
The bills they're passing out
are as useless as his were,
and about as convincing.

Good vs. Evil, not black vs. white




+

 The powers that be want us all chasing the wrong fox. 

The battle going on in our country has nothing to do with black vs. white. 
It has Everything to do with Good vs. Evil, 

And there are all colors on both sides of that equation. 

Choose your side wisely and wake up America, 

While you still have a country to wake up to.

+

Deja Vu



+

So that's it then, we are allowing the Trojan-horse of BLM to trample our country to pieces, unanswered and unpunished.

Not only that, we've rolled out the red carpet for the destruction of our nation --

But of course that's what happens when you destroy history;

History repeats itself.

BLM?


+

Men who are too witless to Create,
 Instead, 
Destroy.

BLM has assumed the endorsement of the entire African American community,
no R.S.V.P. requested or required,
which is hubris in the highest order,
not to mention,
Ironically,

Racist. 

To assume one wants to automatically have membership in and be associated with your little club because of their skin color is the height of hypocrisy.

 Last time I checked, most African Americans are intelligent, dignified, decent contributors to society whose Lives Matter based on their own merit, not their skin color.

So go ahead BLM, continue to bully the American people, black and white, into handing you our approval.
Continue to destroy, terrorize, and wreak havoc till you've crushed everyone's freedom of speech but you're own.
Till everyone understands that no ones lives Matter except for yours

But News Flash:
Destructive lives DON'T matter,
Whatever color you are.

Whose Lives Matter?



+

The Great Gift
Given Every Human Being
is
Choice

Contrary to what the Talking Heads Du Jour
are doling out,
Peddling from their pie holes these days,
Our lives do not Matter
just because we were pooped out onto the planet;
And if we claim they do, this begs the question, 
"To whom?"

Mankind has been presented
with the Extraordinary Privilege
of Making our Lives Matter...

...Or Not.

To accept the welfare checks of self-esteem
being written out wholesale,
paid to the order of "Whosoever Will"
from a bank account woefully in the red and desperately overdrawn
Is to abdicate our God Given Freedom
of Earning
and Owning
How we Matter to Mankind,
Is to indulge in unpareleled naivete and ineptitude,
being conned with cubic zirconias
out of the Diamond of our Dignity.
To buy in to vacuous verbiage is to Sell-out,
Is to willfully choose Slavery
to the Fickle and Groundless
And Very Changeable
Dictums of the Day.

In the end, it will be a jury of our peers
Which reviews the resume we leave behind,
Wherein our value to humanity is determined:
Whether or not our lives benefited our fellow-man in any way
Whether our lives made other lives better
Whether our lives
Did indeed
Matter...

...or Not.

I have a Dream



+

not white
not black

but Perfect Yellow Flowers
Full of Light
Daring the darkness to defy them

Tenaciously Trumpeting
Refusing to be bested
Blasting Their Beauty

against the ugliness,

which, for all its raging in this world
Will Not Succeed
in silencing

Their Still
Small
Thunder

but against the rulers, against the powers, 
against the world forces of this present darkness,
against the spiritual forces of wickedness
in the heavenly supernatural places."
