a child sleeps
under a tree
he has a dream
of walking
with jesus
he looks around
filled with wonder
as his life
passes before him
looks behind them
notices the footprints
they are leaving
in the mud
at journeys end
he notices
many times
there are only
one set of prints
jesus explains
these are the times
things were rough
when jesus carried him
thru the mess
then jesus
gets a puzzled look
says he dosent know
why in places
the mud has indentations
of feet and knees
his prints
nowhere to be found
the child looks at him
and says
these are the times
i came to your house
you werent home
but your caretaker was
you know him
father geoghan
you left me to be with him
i know this
because as he
violated me
he yelled your name
in joyous bliss
over and over
why jesus
why
would you leave me
to stand
next to this man
as he raped me
in your house?

  • those buildings are not my house
    built to glorify my father
    and even He
    cast me
    to the sands...

    ah yes
    your father
    basking in all
    his fucking glory
    how do you feel
    watching as he smiles
    as the father in the cloth
    ejaculates on statues
    of your mother

    Very well written, yet I do not understand the agenda... validation of Catholicism?
  • ah yes


    Every time that I look in the mirror
    All these lines on my face getting clearer
    The past is gone
    It went by like dusk to dawn
    Isn't that the way
    Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

    I know nobody knows
    Where it comes and where it goes
    I know it's everybody's sin
    You got to lose to know how to win

    Half my life's in books' written pages
    Live and learn from fools and from sages
    You know it's true
    All the things come back to you

    Sing with me sing for the years
    Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
    Sing with me if it's just for today
    Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

    Sing with me sing for my year
    Sing for my laughter and sing for my tear
    Sing with me if it's just for today
    Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

    Dream on dream on dream on
    Dream yourself a dream come true
    Dream on dream on dream on
    Dream until your dream comes true
    Dream on dream on dream on dream on
    Dream on dream on dream on yeah

    Sing with me sing for my year
    Sing for my laughter and sing for my tear
    Sing with me if it's just for today
    Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

    Sing with me sing for my year
    Sing for my laughter and sing for my tear
    Sing with me if it's just for today
    Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

    unseen:

    While no victim of such atrocities, I have always made a similar argument when discussing that piece of dogmatic tripe: the footsteps poem.

    I believe it suffices to say that while God may have given me the ability to walk, it is I who chooses whether or not to do so. And if my legs should fail I will decide then, whether or not to crawl.

    Excellent work. Hits like a hammer. If it is personal to you in the worst way I wish to say that I am so very sorry... I hope the bleeding involved in writing such a piece helps in a small way at least.

    Your journal is here, among your faceless friends.
    I'm stepping in front of the gushing hydrant in a hurricane. I'd like to see the traction I keep.
  • so nice to read you again
  • I don't know what to say.

    It is an interesting adaptation of a Christian Book Store staple.

  • One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
    Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.
    When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
    This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it. "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of prints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."
    The LORD replied, "My son, My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

  • hahahahahaaaa







    god is on the inside
    living right next door to the red guy



    and each tosses dog shit into the other one's backyard






    it's actually pretty funny if you ask me...


    all this shit out here, everything attached to any emotion save awe... (ie, volcanos, cosmos, tornados, tomatoes, children)

    it all man made...



    all of it....
    and it's gone when you die
