Poems :  The Gallows
 
So your head is in a noose
Everyone thinks they’re on the inside
When do you cut the line?
When do you let go of a cause?
The world isn’t going to change
My heads in a noose right with you
We’re all on the outside
No rats are getting off the ship
Such a beautiful day
Beauty is such an angel

Hope has become an outsider
I use electricity and the system
Yet I know it is a sinking ship
Paradoxes and riddles
I thought we could change it
I really thought man could change it
No politics as a religion
No secular saviors
They’re trying to plug up the dam
They’re out of fingers

Take a walk and watch the moon
Hear the wind like an old friend
Sit by the oceans and watch the tide
Hear the seagulls like ancient dreams
I must refrain from being overwhelmed
Homes to keep us out of bad weather
We need shelter away from media
We need rest and renewal
We need spirituality of the creation
Quit trying to convert me to politics

Love thy neighbor as thyself
Do I have to believe in a party?
These temporary battles take time
Social justice must be discreet
Say the serenity prayer
Choose your battles with wisdom
Secular solutions can be fickle
Isn’t justice a universal?
Everyone tries to suck you in
The rope keeps tightening

The Gallows is just about finished
The storm is on its way
Most of us know it’s getting worse
Some are dumb as rocks
Some are numb with pleasure
Some think they can buy their way out
I want to help people
I want the wisdom to not beat the air
Sick of shadow boxers with their ideologies
They can hang me! until then I am going to love

I have faith and I am going to live my life
