Hoping to
rid my
mind of
The Unattainable

Clear thoughts
focus on
all but
The Memory

Then discover
something refuses
to kill
The Hope

I’ve heard of
energy flow and

Mind over matter
astral projections
one-ness and

Aren’t they all
a way to explain
we really don’t

How our lives
have been created
by God’s own

Is it so difficult
to accept we
are more than a
scientific fact

And true meaning lies
with faith hope
and love being our
biggest act

Gisteren avond keek ik
naar boven en
zag duizenden sterren
in de zwarte nacht

En de glimmerende puntjes
miljoenen jaren ver
vertelden mij van hoop
en gaven me kracht

Om te beseffen dat zolang
ik kan genieten van
Zijn scheppingen die
in de hemel staan

Mijn leven genoeg waard
is voor Hem om
steeds maar moedig
door te gaan

Blue neon angels with
Golden trumpets and halos
Strung along snowflakes and
Holly on lampposts herald
Peace and goodwill triumphantly
To all without a sound
As I drive home

While the man on the radio
Talks about violence and sex
In comic books and his hopes
Of a multi-billion dollar
Franchise complete with
Action figures of the heroes
For young children

And I think to myself how
Fitting the metaphor of the
Silenced divine messengers among
Passersby in the night where
Violence and greed are eagerly
Explored after the Christmas
Sale signs have disappeared

Reality rips through me
like a fever
shredding everything

And every time I
think I’ve healed
the fresh wounds open

I wish I could simply
deny the constant
haunting day and

Oh to wake up in the
morning and see
everything in new

Please give me strength
dear God
as I keep wondering

If I can ask you to
stay with me
until my tears are
