The Light

In the confusion of our times,

There is light,

And the light is greater than the dark,

It seems as though there is but one light and all else is dark,

But that is the illusion of judgment,

Look beyond belief,

Look beyond the flesh,

Look beyond the world,

And you will see light.

Blinding light that knows no equal.

This light begot us.

This light awaits us.

And despite how it may seem, this light reigns.

 

In the confusion of our times,

There is light,

And the light is greater than the dark,

Find it, become it, and heal the world.

 

Right Now

Right Now

Right now, there is a man in a straight jacket screaming for the guards to remove the spiders from his eyes.

Right now, there is a man in a straight jacket screaming for the guards to remove the spiders who keep biting his eyes, raping him of his consciousness, and subverting him to madness.

Right now, there is a 14 year old girl who pleasures a 50 year old monster day and night, because he won her in a poker game.

Right now, there is a man in his car with two police officers on either side, fearing for his life, because he knows what happens to niggers at night.

Right now, there is a mother reading her daughter a story full of light and wonder, as she says, “I love you baby.”

Right now, there are college graduates roaming the streets of Minneapolis looking for homeless people to put up for the night,

Right now, there are Yogi superhumans speaking to each other telepathically as they attend a festival in honor of Ganesha,

And right now, there is a man who has seen hell itself, in his soul he saw it, but it couldn’t take his faith and now he writes again.

And how is all of this possible?  There is a master of light and she is wondrous and there is a master of darkness, and it is relentless.  But the truth is that darkness can never defeat light, because just when it thinks it’s won, it begins to shine with the luminescence of a creature converted.  Because the grace of God is irresistible.  So no matter what you’re going through, just know, you can’t lose.  Because God’s real, and his light will shine  forever.
