To my never-friend by j.p. 04/16/08

Put on the waterproof today
Not sure why he passed away.
It's crazy to remember the days gone by,
Seems like yesterday he made me cry.
Playground times with too much teasing,
He never really cared about teacher-pleasing.
Years wandered by and then,
I reconnected with my never-friend.
His eyes full of sincerity,
He apologized for what he'd done to me.
Changed by Christ, sins washed away,
He was renewed, his debts had been forever paid.
Now I go to say good-bye one last time,
To my never-friend, with water-proofed eyes.

Crazy World -jp 04/12/08

Crazy world
Can I leave you behind?
Escape this reality
And the mixed up state of mind?
Crazy world
You've got it all wrong
Poisoning hearts
With your siren song.
Crazy world
I wish I could take their pain away
Destroy those choices
And debts they have to pay.
Crazy world
You just don't understand forgiveness anyway
Turning your back and spitting
Covering the innocent one's face.
Crazy world
You leave solitude in your wake
Heads spinning, bodies jarring
With every soul you take.
Crazy world
Sometimes I feel so alone
Just living my life in truth
Every step setting the tone.
Crazy world
What future lies ahead?
So much suffering from the lies
The darkness pouring from words unsaid.
Crazy world.
Crazy, crazy mixed up world.
I don't belong to you.
Me and my foreign heart.
