forsaken/in hindsight

5 Jul

this may enhance your reading pleasure.


in this cold life my knees were bent on cold floors as i looked up

they told me to ask and i shall receive but all i received were dirty knees and hymns

desperate tears left salty trails for me too walk alone to afraid to question

i loved you because i was told to

sun rays bursting through clouds and the breeze through trees were my proof that you were here but sun rays can’t stop blood shed nor feed hungry infants and the trees ignored me

i was most eager to meet you and learn to bathe in your light my return was stone silents in the middle of arid existence

my life was nearing its end and I wanted you to tell me something be here to escort me to the other side

no escort came and i had to hitchhike to my destination

my heart remains broken as the father has left me here blindfolded hands bound with no tongue and tells me to have faith

i have faith in my ability to continue on and seek what i will

it was not i that made cross not i that pieced your side with weapon i did not crown you with thorn

my kin have loved you for no reason while in god we trust none of their pockets hold

good may come to those of us who wait but no clock need be watched nor breath held

my darkest days were left dark i was scared and confused and i was left scared and confused

i have turned cheek and loved my enemy i have but two cheeks and my enemies surrounded me you didn’t give me enough love or cheeks

my hope is firmly in place that you will come to me come for me but waiting is for the dead and warm is still the blood that courses through my veins

    This post speaks volumes. God is always with you, especially in your weakest moments. You survived because he came for you.

      Thank you for reading this.

      The Most High is indeed always with us, this piece speaks to the traditional organized religion that I grew up with.

        The music on this changes the whole feel of the piece and then it was just, Wow…….

          absolutely. The music even changed it for me. You won’t believe this, but this music is actually a remix. Dinah Washington did do This Bitter Earth, but the music is by Max Richter which is a separate piece all together. The title of the song is The Nature of Daylight.

          Thank you for giving it a read.
