Why do you give up?

Why do you give up
When nothing stops
Everything embraces
To live in abundance

 

Why do you give up
When no one can stop
Since the good-hearted ones
Always come and elevate

 

Why do you give up
When God is not dead
Actually present
In the life if He is let

 

Why do you give up
When you are special
Unique and eternal
Full of potential

 

Why do you give up
When God loves
Through the whole creation
You are the one
Whom He wants
To make happy

What would you say to God?

What would you say to God

since He is as real as you are

would you doubt He exists

just because you can’t see

would you condemn Him

because of others’ responsibility

would you err His ways

out of your understanding

would you neglect His love

to stay in your comfort zone

would you shout at Him

your own pains and griefs

would you blame Him

for your own decisions

would you accuse Him

why didn’t He intervene

would you laugh at Him

still carrying Heaven’s ideal

 

or

would you stop talking through your mouth

and start to speak with your actions

would you let His spark light a fire in you

inviting Him to work together

 

He will be there

I was alive once with you

I’m just a burned sun
You’re what you’ve done
I’m without love
For you
Redemption is gone

 
I’m still the one
You’re who you’ve become
I’m without fun
For you
Absolution is gone

 
No need for longing
It’s gone
No place for hoping
It was wrapped and sent away
To the unknown one

 
I’m just a scorched planet
You’re who saves only herself
I’m without resentment
For you
Eternity is lost unreported

 
I’m still saving the days
You’re wasting the nights
I’m bravering my mind
For my
Own worth matters too in life

 
I’m not your alchemist anymore
I couldn’t turn your lead to gold
You’re ain’t my Messiah either
You didn’t hold my tether
But I’ve found myself
In the desert
Where we’d burnt everything

 
I’ll miss your morning star that darkened the sky
I’ll miss all your failures that broke my heart
I’ll miss your imperfections that showed you complete
I’ll miss your body that made me feel
I was alive
Once
With you
I was alive
Once
With you

You never wanted me

You never wanted me

Just my illusion

A painted shade

On the wall of lovers

 

Our game was meant to be life

We took it too seriously

And went too far

By now separately

 

Words cannot be trusted

There is no more wisdom to earn

Mistaken patience paralyzed

And stopped us to grow

 

Togetherness is an ideal

Not meant to be reached

For those who are abandoned

And live in broken dreams

 

I’m relieving to take a breath

That’s all I have left

Enough to be a good man

And find a kind of happiness

Bird of Love

bird of love
where’s the bird of love
now
has it flown away
or
never been
here
at all

 
past is haunting
every day
living in
a bad daydream
nevermore
says the crow
I don’t wanna face
this facade show
because
you’re the Sun
in my life
you’re the magic
and despite all
what went wrong
I still love you
I still have hope
forevermore

Harder than hard (a farewell from my father)

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
there are no night and no days
nothing remains here

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
echoes of love
drained dreams remained here

all the broken promises
all the tainted memories
all the made-up vanities
all the fainted braveries

all the gaslighted abuses
all the heart burnt oh the bruises
all the forgotten embraces
all the life you took from me

I let you free
I set you free
now

I forgive
just like Jesus
fatherless
no-one’s child

You couldn’t know
the mess you made
unable
and cursed for life

I forgive
just like Jesus
abandoned
through the time

you’re somewhere else
I can’t see you
and it’s breaking
all my heart

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
there are no night and no days
nothing remains here

it’s harder than hard
excruciating
echoes of love
drained dreams remained here

echoes of love
echoes of love

remember the good times

remember the good times

remember the holy ground

where we stood and stayed

danced and kissed

through the night

 

remember the good times

but

all the years are gone now

remember the good times

but you

never said why you left

remember the good times

how we dreamt and yet survived

and

how we broke everything

what was nice and so dear

now we know every pain

 

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows, nobody knows

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows me, nobody knows me

Who knows who you are

Who knows who you are

Might be God

Or just your self-indulgence

 

Who has the eyes

To show you a mirror

With your broken wrinkles

 

Who brings you the message of hope

To prosper not just to survive

During your lost times

 

Who changes your vanity

Your self-pity, your worry

Your obsolete obnoxious old mindset

 

Who knows who your are

Might be God

Or just your self-indulgence

The origin of the Heavenly Kingdom is the family

“The origin of the Heavenly Kingdom is the family. You have to turn the family the other way round, based on true love. Even in the family, the second generation has to get into action. Young people are being destroyed by the day. They have been cornered in a hotbed of drugs. Shot by the devil’s arrows, they indulge themselves with abandon in premarital sex. Gathering from every village, young people will band together to assist the police in the elimination of evil gangs in the community. If scoundrels appear in the village, the time has come for the second generation to shoulder the responsibility to drive them away and to educate the villagers, together with their parents. Your family now becomes one of hope. Those preparing to meet the coming of an ideological world where the foundation of peace can be expanded from your own family to the world are sagacious citizens who can receive abundant blessings in the future.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
