-Hot lemon Chitos-Whopper malt balls-Hot chocolate packs-Sour patch kids candy
Everyone says that it’s alright
Living in darkness every night
But I think it’s time to find outAnd make that change
Farther along we’ll understand why
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We’ll understand this, all by and by
Tempted and tried, I wondered why
The good man died, the bad man thrives
And Jesus cries because he loves em’ both
We’re all cast-aways in need of ropes
Hangin’ on by the last threads of our hope
I will always agree with this sentiment! Been reading Whitman lately and a little of Rimbaud even. Poetry truly makes the heart come alive! Have you seen Dead Poets Society? Always a good one!
Thank you, Seth. I needed that.
Thank you my friend.
Excellent, Seth. Well said. And well-written. This is a poem in itself!
Look forward to hearing some Cambodian “poems” when you return. Godspeed, brother!
Beautifully put…. poetry excites my soul for sure. Thank you for this.

Go bless those girls in Cambodia! Keep up the good work brother. You are making such an impact in this coach’s life! Bless you man.
Abuse kills creativity. It takes a long time to come back. Poetry and dreaming and music help, but are hard to come by for a wounded soul. How can we make more corporate space for this, so life and health seep back in to painful, scarred places? “We need more poetry in our lives…” — such good words!

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
