The Defiance of Despair

The tears of Heaven fall,
Where headstones cover hearts,
Hearts that are still beating,
Placed within the darkness,
Without the sound of souls.

The soulless sing victory,
Drinking lifeblood of the weak,
While laughing at the meek,
Inhaling the last breath,
Believing they are strong.

Illusion is their world,
Where stars obey their whims,
They cannot control their limbs,
Believing that they do rule,
They become the weakest slaves.

Not seeing the clear truth,
Strength is of the heart,
Which Heaven will impart,
For all of those who willing,
Will speak the song of love.

For to smile is in truth,
Of living joy defiant,
In Heaven’s strength reliant,
With patience as the mortar,
In building walls of stone.

For such is the fortress,
Of those who live for life,
Be they husband or a wife,
Passing strength on in wisdom,
To the young who wish to learn.

We only own ourselves,
Our one true possession,
To give it up is in regression,
Deciding to believe in nothing,
When God’s breath does give us air.

And so I will sing joyous,
With the Christmas time renewing,
Love’s gift of life renewing,
To touch hearts once turned cold,
For to show strength is to care.

The Night of Day

There are many among us,
Walking without hearts,
Whom breathe the air we share,
Looking but not seeing,
Speaking but not hearing,
They are shadows among living,
And without heart truly dead.

Those on the path of feeling,
Seeking pain along with pleasure,
On a journey of the heart,
Finding peace in God aflame,
As the air within our lungs,
Has a weight of nothing,
Yet weighs down our souls,
Upon the living Earth,
To share glory from above.

For in seeing physical life,
We are seeking past the seen,
Seeing souls within the colors,
Eyes portraying spirits,
Shaping song upon the silence,
With words beyond the spoken,
Where hearts sing past the sound,
And colors fill the voidless,
What was barren takes on form,
As beauty fills in meaning,
From the hand of God.

Take heart all ye living,
Awake within the darkness,
Seen from stars observing,
Our shadows under the clouds,
Eyes watching beyond time,
As stars spell out the timeless,
And the truth is sung eternal,
To rhythms of the beating heart,
Causing cold hearts to start beating,
Dead eyes begin to open,
As tears bring warmth to cheeks,
And the soul draws in new breath,
Life’s rebirth on wings of love.
