Sense the Sensibility

She knew people didn’t
all ways make sense
often offended rudderless
but- hardly dense

Sinking in flotsam of
memories reborn
rising like monoliths from
flesh freshly torn

And who can go raging
against that good night
when lost byway becomes
lost by sight

Close enough to grasp
too slippery to catch
give-a-dog-a-bone and
he won’t fetch

Uncomfortable plight
roils beneath the skin
turbid inner struggle to
begin again

Melt the resistance or
raze to the ground
give grace a chance while
Grace will be found

Every reason, He says
for doing what’s wrong
only One
for doing what’s right


“I have been literally worried sick about so many things, including my past, my future, my finances, what people thought about me. And because I couldn’t get my mind off of my problems, I found myself in a place of utter torment. ..we should be conscious of God’s love. It needs to be more than just a biblical fact for us, we need to experience it daily. -excerpt: Perfect Love Casts Out Fear by Joyce Meyer

in the absence of fear there is change –Holy Spirit
1John 4:18

Overcoming our sense of powerlessness is indispensable for creative work. It is truism that you cannot produce anything worthwhile unless you speak to what matters in your life and are excited about what you write or draw. Brecht used to say that whatever is produced in boredom can only generate boredom and he was right. But in order to translate our pains and pleasures into a page or a song we must have a sense of power, enough to believe that our words will be heard.
