Is Christmas your light?

Are you riding on the shopping tide
now
this time in your life
buying and consuming
taking and possessing
longing and needing
some extraordinary
long-desired
miniscule thing
wasting and ridiculing
the very one
who is supposed to hear
the one
who is supposed to speak
act and stand up
give and not want
the brave and long forgotten
true light-filled
conscious
steward of God
or
are you fighting for the lost ones
now
giving them true love
carrying them for an extra mile
in your life
is Christmas your light?

Just like our Father does

Everybody believes
Yet nobody is right
Everyone strives
Yet no one has a heart

 

Just like our Father does
Trusts as nobody trusts
Never questions never doubts
Just unconditionally loves

 

Gimmicky emotions
Basic-instinct relations
Carnage-wanting lives
Pretended desires

 

Live like our Father does
Trust as nobody trusts
Never question never doubt
Just unconditionally love

 

Days of broken promises
Every forgotten memories
All the long abandoned dreams
Each and every exploded bridge

 

Yet we are still here to dream
Yet we are still here to feel
Yet we are still here to care
Yet we are still here to dare

 

Just like our Father does
Trusts as nobody trusts
Never questions never doubts
Just unconditionally loves

 

Live like our Father does
Trust as nobody trusts
Never question never doubt
Just unconditionally love

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

When the world falls onto your shoulders

When the world falls onto your shoulders

And there is nobody to help

You feel conflicted and alone

Neglected, abused

 

You would grasp some air to inhale

But just the scent of failures

Fills your lungs and mind

No escape day or night

 

There is no-one else to trust

You’ve betrayed yourself, too

More than enough

Now you really need a hug

 

Just look around

What you can see

Is not real

Just pretended fear

 

Since He is here

To support you

He is here

To elevate you

 

God is your friend in need

God is your parent in need

God answers you

When you’re in need

 

All the pains and sorrow

Just trials to make you whole

To get rid of the past’s

Haunting demons

 

It’s you who matters

And your actions speak

You decide Heaven or Hell

Where you want to live

 

 

Joshua Dragon

 

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
