Swirls of fire – smoke is undetected and the deep sleep will go on forever.
Nothing sacred about this – nothing that I can find.
Sinkholes and quicksand where love was, once upon a time.
Swirls of fire and sounds of screams…
the walls closing it and nothing can be seen.
Bearded men in the front, dressed all in black, ladies in wigs sitting in the back.
Prayers are said, in whispers and in screams – searching for answers…
What can this all mean?
Children are lost, confused and asking questions.
Running in circles, grasping at the wind and trying to capture the sun light.
Men huddled speaking softly, what went wrong on that night?
Swirls of fire – smoke undetected but did it have to end this way?
What kind of answer, what kind of reasons can be used to satisfy the ones who question?
Is it the end of the world, is it the time of redemption?
I walk alone, I ponder.
I write some words and I sit and wonder.
I aint looking for no answers or reasons for this.
Just striving for acceptance that this sort of sadness can exist.
Not striving for repentence, not looking to change a thing.
Just living as I always have and hoping for a world without suffering.
I believe, I believe, I believe – what else can I do?
You brought me out of the city and granted me the freedom to live.
You drove away my pain, fed me manna and taught me to forgive.
Those swirls of fire, have taken them away
Eternally children nothing left to say…
