In Between

Find comfort in the In Between,

The Gray, the dreaded Middle Scene.

In a world of black and white,

As would-be martyrs seek a fight,

Take the third, less-traveled Way

And refuse their game to play.

This does not mean you do not choose.

With neutral stance, the “lessers” lose.

It simply means we pick our sides

Not based on what the world decides,

But based on love and what will will heal

And what will make the Kingdom real.

“They” would have us draw our lines

In ways that promote their designs.

How different would this wide world be

If we decided to break free?

Silent Place

A silent place to calm my head,

Empty pews with nothing said.

The only light from votives bright,

That center me in thought tonight.

In silence, I can hear the sound

Of countless saints gathering ’round

And whispering into my ear

The Way I need to go from here.

I believe that quietude

Serves as a sort of “Spirit Food”

That nourishes our inward parts,

And brings new life into our hearts.

If ever things just get too loud,

Take a moment from the crowd

And let the silence speak to you,

And give you grace to make it through.

A Void

The Sadness is a void within.

It numbs the heart, it mars the skin;

It breaks the spirit, it pains the soul;

It keeps its victims from the Whole.

Yet the Sadness is a lie,

It can be beaten if we try.

But not alone, for that is how

The Sadness beats upon our brow.

Make the call or say the word.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard.

‘Cause help is not for weak or small,

Community’s a need for all.

If you are struggling with depression, self-harm, or thoughts of suicide, it’s okay. Please call 1-800-273-8255 now.
