God is a Ghost

god is a ghost

The cobwebs, the crooked doors, and the darkened hallways
I forget to acknowledge myself in all my ways
I forget there is one constant in all of the universe
It still has to run its course
When I feel all alone
I forget there is a soul of mine I can call my own
Aliens, ghosts, and skeletons
But don’t you forget God is a ghost
He has come to give you what you need most
You should fear this ghost
He can mysteriously pop up in front of you during the day
Sometimes it appears he is unseen
But he knows what you need
He has come to reap and comfort
For he alone can heal our hurt
Don’t forget God’s a ghost
And he loves you very much
Don’t forget his mysterious power

Disgraceful Swan

swan.jpg

I was one of many swans

In a spacious pond

 

Every swan was peaceful

They rode the waters with such ease

As they rode they felt an adventurous pull

 

Everywhere they went they were seekers

Seekers of food and a scenic swim

And mothers taught their young like teachers

 

But not I

I cannot lie

 

I would hunt for food and push others away

It would annoy the other swans

So I was a famished swan by day

 

At night I would get lost and cry with a yelp

It would ruffle their feathers

They would ignore my cry for help

 

I felt so utterly alone

Like my heart was made of stone

 

They thought I was greedy

But deep inside I knew the truth

I was just desperately needy

 

From dusk to dawn I’ve learned the hard way

I will always just be a disgraceful swan

World Shifting

 

king-and-queen1

 

The world is going through a shift

God is taking us through a sift

Now it’s not the time for fear

But submit to God in prayer

 

Some many things steal our attention from our first love

We can’t give the devil anymore permission

The devil service comes for you and me

But we can destroy his works with the holy dove

 

Joel 2 is coming to body of Christ

Because of the Jesus’s paid price

The devil service doesn’t want us to stand

As king and queens, hand in hand

 

Reject the lies of the evil one

That you aren’t loved, unconditionally

That you aren’t royalty unto the Most High

Because one day we will shine like the Son

We Are Highly Evolved Creatures (The Light Upon My Feet)

light-forest

There is chaos in the wind
I want to know if you are my friend
But I ask you, your head turns
If a monkey comes to me and says I evolved from him
I will steal a bannana from him
I want to hold you close
And I want you to hold my heart
And tell me we will never partI can’t live today
Because on the news today they said the world is going to end tomorrow
I can’t live tomorrow
Because I probably won’t be here

We are highly evolved creatures
Some much is going on
Some much we want to know
We are like inch-worms moving one step at a time on the concrete
I would think since we are highly evolved creatures we could live for today
But we have a hard time looking forward to see where our feet are planted
Everything in this life we take for granted
Anytime our sparkle goes away in our hands, we get scared

God promises light on my feet
Not a crystal ball in the future

Iceberg In Your Heart

iceberg

There is an iceberg in your heart
And it’s melting slowly and quietly
But let it dissolve
Inside are the keys to your heart

You have a lead leg
And when you use your hands for talking
They glue together
But let it be heavy
Inside the lead is a motor

You act like you have it all together
But you know better
You use big vocabulary
You use bright facial expressions
But I know better

Let it go
And let it out
You are just a rope tied
To your childhood tree house
But you have been too tied to go up there and visit again
