Blessed

For some,
The mind is a battle field

The feelings
too deep &
dark
To keep

A land mine of troubled
Thoughts
Confusion &
Fear,
Await each day
with too much to say

She calls me
Desperate
to escape…
wherever she is…

Is it a school?
A store?
The other day it was
Fairbault, MN
God only knows why…

I seek solace in
The Beatitudes:

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.

Blessed are they who mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Knowing that it is in our weakness,
we can
See Him best

Stripped
Of our pride,
malice,
And quest
For control

Within His
Merciful arms,

Comes
Comfort,
Hope,
Consolation

Allowing us
At last,
to rest.

I think of my mom with this song…

We can never go home, son
We no longer have one
I’ll help you carry the load, son
I’ll carry you in my arms

We walk through the ash
And the charred remains of our country
Keep an eye on my back, son
I’ll keep an eye on the road

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Help me to carry the fire
This road can’t go on forever

If I say shut your eyes, son
If I say look away
Bury your face in my shoulder
Think of a birthday

The things you put in your head
They won’t stay there forever
I’m trying hard to hide your soul, son
From things it’s not meant to see

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Help me to carry the fire
This road can’t go on forever

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Now help me to carry the fire
This road won’t go on forever

No sound but the wind
No sound but the wind

If I say shut your eyes
If I say shut your eyes
If I say shut your eyes
If I say shut your eyes

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Help me carry the fire
This road won’t go on forever
