One Lutheran's Thoughts

Live and grow, change, reform...well, this blog used to be my 'primary' space, but not any more. This is now the online 'home' of my poetic ramblings and musings. Sometimes there is a faith/theological hue, while others not so much. Check out the pictures. Remember - literacy is visual too!

Its spinning out of control
The power and force that we
Place on peoples without consent.
Who are we to engage in this battle?
Are all of our people free?
Free from poverty? Hunger?
Violence? Abuse? Slander? Hatred?
When we look in the mirror do we see

The protector of the free world
Has taken into her hands the world
Not in protection - but

There are angry and brutal leaders
Across the globe
Yet we seek one out without support
From the union we chose to join.
Arrogance is what we are consumed by
Falling deeper and deeper into the pit of tyranny.

Who will stop us?
When will we realize that we have crossed the line
Into a world and territory we don't belong
Not now - not in this way.

Love of one far away
Love never truly spoken of
Love that will go unspoken
Love that is not quite understood
Love that desires
Love that years
Love that lingers alone.
