Love Is What Tips The Balance

Smoke clouds billow, choke, and roll;
Bleak is the day and
Dark is the night,
And yet we stand in fight, flight, fright or freeze,
Instead of voicing truth and hope—
We speak aloud discordant tones
Of beliefs and choices,
Emotions and retaliations,
And of theologies and doctrines
Personalised through carefully crafted filters of ‘good versus evil’ and ‘evil versus good.’

Creation Speaks

Inside dry bricks and walls of steel
Sit windows framed with wood,

Obscure the world outside;
Wild frequencies are rumbling
Through earth—
Creation sighs…

Freedom involves agreeing to disagree and championing truth, life, individuality, and creativity. Freedom involves drawing the gold out of one another, instead of segregating according to difference. Why not let the chains fall away and become a child of freedom?

Whether through fatigue or choice—
In response to the chaotic airwaves currently
Having their say,
Their way,
Their complete disregard for Who Jesus is,
Where He stands,
And what He wants...
