The Straight and Narrow, It’s Hard to be Gay There

Image

I often wonder how life would be if we were free.

If gravity and broken wings no longer existed.

If beauty, joy, and laughter never faded.

The key to these cages, are said to exist within the mind.

Religions seem to darken the shades already covering the eyes of the blind.

Are the streets of gold too holy for the feet of a weary soul to touch?

Is He who is said to be the embodiment of love, too proud of a judge,

to forgive his delinquent children for dropping the cup, which contains the blood,

spilling the communion, leaving a smudge

On these earthly clothes

Aren’t we all stained by pain, handling it in different ways?

Drugs, indulging in chocolate,

A world full of slaves, desiring to escape.

The straight and narrow, its hard to be gay there,

The wages of being broken is death, thats why I didn’t stay there.

The path was too cold, so I took Frost’s advice,

And stepped on the one less traveled.

Found out God’s only word is Love, guess he’d lose a game of Scrabble.

The game the world invented.

Built on men’s decisions.

Rooted in false perceptions of perfection.

And not to mention: the ultimate deception is to believe that the Creator’s love mimics ours,

Based on conditions.

My wings aren’t so broken.

Sometimes I just fly in the wrong direction.

Then God breathes, pointing me back to heaven.

I used to wonder how life would be, if we were truly free.

Eternity opened my eyes, it was nothing but a dream.

Who Prays for Satan?

But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?

-Mark Twain 

Think about it. We are supposed to believe that “all things are possible to him who believe” right… so why don’t we pray as if all things are? Many will say, “Satan doesn’t want to be forgiven, he doesn’t want to change.” Others will say, “it is already written.” Have you read the book of Jonah? It was already written (in the mind of God) that the city of Ninevah would be destroyed [unless] they turned from their hurtful ways. Jonah did not want to go there, not only because he was afraid to be persecuted, but [mainly] because he knew God would show them mercy. Do you all believe the devil deserves hell? Which, according to a standard of holiness, he does! Yet, when will there come a time in your thinking, when you will desire a change of heart in an evil being, more than you desire him to be destroyed or tortured for eternity? When will you desire compassion to enter into a heartless being, for the sake of them, so that they can be healed? When will you put off your own emotions of hurt, anger, and revenge, and replace them with actual love for those who need it most? It is crazy how Christians can boast of the wicked going to hell, and them inheriting heaven (I used to do it too). Yes, that may be a glorious thing, for YOURSELF, but it is the most saddening thing that could ever happen to the soul of another. So the next time you rejoice about the “wicked” being punished, remember that you just wasted breath, because the time you used to rejoice over the pain of another, could’ve been rightly used to pray for a change in their heart, and mercy from God.
