Painfully standing tall

160511 road less traveled2

Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.^

Alone in humanity
Harm finding all
Power wielding parity
Painfully standing tall

 

160511 heart

You know how you sound…? Like a man who’s trying to convince himself of something he doesn’t believe in his heart.*

Questioned attempt to join the base
Is it possible to win this race
With a shadow covered face
And ones heart in full disgrace

 

160511 Casablanca

If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.*

Staying the course with the few
So much fully still askew
Owe it to the harmed and hurt
Regrets be damned no divert

 160511 yoda

But I’ve got a job to do, too. Where I’m going, you can’t follow.*

Follow you cannot do
Lead you must
Fixing systems overdue
Together trust

 

160511 fire-earth

…If we stop breathing, we’ll die. If we stop fighting our enemies, the world will die.*

Vulnerable and open
Facing powers that be
In action not hoping
Of service to thee

 

160413 Lead like Jesus

Welcome back to the fight. This time I know our side will win.*

Time to arise
Mind and heart
Care for despised
Do our part
