Happy Sunday: The Answer Edition

I had a dream this morning
It ended with a question
The answer was:
“Please God”

I did not remember the question
It was a figment, long gone
The answer was:
“Please God”

A man did speak the answer
A very important man
Spoke the answer:
“Please God”

A voice so crystal, clean clear
A question unknown
And the answer:
“Please God”

It has been a long day of
Getting all that done
The answer still:
“Please God”

I do fly on damaged wings
But I can still fly
To destinations that
Please God

TRADITIONAL GOSPEL VERSION OF “STAND BY ME” AS PERFORMED BY JOSEPHINE JAMES
.

.

“King’s might be the best-known version of Stand By Me, but the Christian hymn of that name was written in 1905 by Pastor Charles Tindley, as a plea to the Lord for support and guidance in times of doubt and suffering. It was directly inspired by verse 4 of the far, far older Psalm 23: ‘Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me.””

—Marcus Gray, Guardian UK, Oct 2007

Sunday: The Second Sunday

Children Day

We heard that we had killed a man

who was our sworn enemy

That he was buried at sea

after careful preparation according to his religion

As no country would take him;

So no country could make his body a shrine

We scream in joy/cringe in shame

that we killed our enemy

The contradictions of killing,

then ultimate respect for the dead

Tell us that we are sometimes human

Yes, we are sometimes human

Unless our enemy is a poor or dark skinned 12 year old

of our very own

Locked up in a children’s prison of our very own

Treated worse than enemies

who swear to kill us all

There is vastly more in the news and the forums

that we mistreat the mortal enemy

Than there is in the news and the forums

about our own children

This tells us that we are not fully human

We are in no way fully human

When our mortal enemy gets more care and respect

With burial at sea

and more glamorous ritual and care

Then our very own children

who are imprisoned, murdered, cremated and tossed

Like dust in the garbage

Like dust in the wind.

For the children.

The World’s children.

The children who are somewhow an easier

and more forgettable

and less reportable kill

Than killing evil men.

Over 2200 juveniles nationwide have been sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Children as young as 13 years old have been tried as adults and sentenced to die in prison, typically without any consideration of their age or circumstances of the offense.

Happy Sunday; Happy Easter; Jungleburbia IV

Please Listen to the music and read and savor slowly for the full experience.

I took a walk today in Jungleburbia

I live in Jungleburbia

Where the landscape is lush

And after years is mature

But now it makes me want to cry

From joy over this Eden outside my door.

 

Photobucket

I never expected to live

In Jungleburbia

A place with nice pathways

And golden sun or cheerful gloom

But in the Spring things happen in this Eden

And every year they happen better

So beautiful, I just have to cry

Photobucket

I think that no one knew

About Jungleburbia

When planting plant after tree

When money flowed like water

There was just exuberance and joy

And too much was not enough

Here, the lilies of the field do not spin 

Nor do they toil

Photobucket

Yet they serve to give us

Beautiful late days 

And they serve to make us forget

Our losses, our pains, our sadness

They serve by being

And they fill us when we mistakenly think

That much is gone and that this is not home.

Photobucket

And even the newest life gives a reminder

 To appreciate the simple things

The wondrous things

That

Like us,

Are no accident

Or pointless

Inconsequential

Expectation of life

Or automatic nature

Thank you, Jesus
