The Shore

Image

 

Is life a desert?

Surrounded by mirages, even reality seems false.

If I had known giving myself up to love came at a cost,I would’ve opted to buy the off brand versions: alcohol, sex, and smoking.

There’s no escape from hurting, these white picket fences really got us entrapped in hell.

The American Dream, a ponzi scheme.

A well with no water, yet we continue to lower the bucket as if it’ll be full when we pull it back up.

So much faith we have in lies, but in time we’ll have to face that we’ve been tied to the same chains that brought us here.

Hung us here.

But, rather than our bodies, our minds are the new victims of genocide.

If I had known giving myself to love came at a cost, honestly I’d give more.

I endured the stormy seas, so I’d appreciate the shore. 


That’s Why We Never See Him

A wise man said God is everywhere, that’s why we never see him.

Many ask how can He be good, the poor ..why he never feed em?

The broken vessels God speaks to, ignore the conscience that tells them..

to stop lying about the change in their pockets.

That the key to peace lies in our hearts, we just choose to lock it.

Is Jesus God, was Muhammad the last prophet?

Theological knowledge, does acquiring it bring about a profit?

Chasing heaven, not realizing its been stored within.

Trying to kill our enemies, blind to the fact that they’re our fraternal twins.

We’re all seeds from the same gardener, planted in different lands.. 

molded by the world, searching for the Creators hand.

But a wise man said God is everywhere..

look in the mirror, you’ll see Him.
