Stifled


Restored, but not before having to give my word
Are my “words” my own?
To give?, To take back?, To withhold?
Witness blind-folded bound and gagged?
Pretend not to see?
Not to hear?
A sound-proofed rooftop from which to shout,
What was gently whispered in an ear?
It grates, it chides, it dis-kabbobulates
It’s a fine thread pulled unraveling the whole
Until nothing of worth remains
Politically correct,
“Shhhh….hush you mouth boy,
Folks will hate you and how’s that gonna’ make us all look?”
Man, life was easier when all was fantasy, contrived, make believed bull…
Reality is a bitch!
You don’t really want this?
The Truth?
There is no place for “Truth” in the world.
Why do we proclaim to be in the world but not of it?
When our speech and actions proclaim we still love it?
The truth hurts,
But it’s supposed to.
Sin feels good till it’s something we resist and become opposed to
The pain increases before the peace becomes known
We cannot illustrate to others
What we ourselves have not heard
Nor been shown
I weary…
Am I alone?
An audience of one in three
Points to home
If your grace truly is sufficient
Then I must have interpreted it
All wrong
Stirring waters
Making waves
But nothing moves
So many anchored in places
Dry-docked…
And in safe harbors of comfort
Fearful to set sail
Shuddering in storms
Waiting for their passing in silence
Stagnant.

One thought on “Stifled

  1. If you changed the format from “if you asked me” to “Jesus once said” you would still get the same off-putting reaction for having tipped over some golden calves. Face it, there is a lot of Christian life-style game playing going on. And all the while the Man of Sorrows wants to get inside and revolutionize…Doug
