No One Knows

No one knows 
Do they tell
Why the world turns
Doesn’t fall
Into hell.

Maybe it has
There we are
No one knows
Do they tell.

Loaded Down With Agony

November 21, 2012

Loaded down with agony
I push past the entrance
Into hell.
Hope desperately not to dwell
But see the possibility
If I do not undo this awful spell
Stuck down here in my misery
Stuck down here in my hell.

See the light above me
See the stairs lace up from here
Trace the steps back up thru agony
Past the entrance out of here.
Out the gates of Hell into loving
Living memories in a wondrous
Earthly Heaven where there is
No more wretched hell.

Blessed be this living
Please do let me dwell
Here in Heaven
Crushing all sadness
Rising up from awful
Awful hell.

Today I Listened

October 30, 2011

Today I listened
To the sound
Of Heaven and Earth
Trying to expound
All the things I left behind
In the middle, centre mind.

Not so nice
Not so dear
But surely held in the fear
Someone else find me out
Or those of us
Would hear about.

Yes, I know I shouldn’t call
Then today I heard the sound
Of Heaven and Earth
trying to expound
Hell on Earth
And bring it down.
