I heard the sky begins at the ground. . .
so, i guess that’s why they live in the clouds--in my city
and there’s a line around corner at the clinic
where they get the next trip for free, but leave empty
I’ve seen plenty put their pennies in a plate
while their promised it’ll be okay--have faith
and he’s driving’ in his Audi to the burbs
tinted windows camouflage the pain--cheapskates
I see you fighting’ to get back up on the wagon
but you can’t fight pills with angst--need grace
It beats trying’ just muscle it till bloody knuckles
beat you back into that chase--keep pace
in the jungle with the savages and masquerades
I’m telling you, it’s sabotage, they done camouflaged bacteria
to make you bite mirages like a cast away
alas, restless till your heart can rest at last inside His hand
saying. . .

It’s like my city beats with baited breath
waiting’ for the day when pain’s alleviated from it’s weighted chest 3. i’ve seen it’s patience turn to rage only to fade into mistakes
to Monday mornings where they hate to smell of waking’ up
and how it’s air is changing’ faces cuz it’s taking’ dust
then there’s the wasted, nodding’ faded from the taste of skunk
but in the souls of the jaded, the devastated
from doing everything that they He hated--I see His face
portraits of His portrait, painted over with poor traits
satiated with poor fakes--forgeries of the LORD’S grace
why look for getaways in prisons where the floor quakes,
and gravity pulls all the grins to frowns before the boards break? 13. we’re made for more than broken promises and forays
Displayed in His benevolence for enemies He tore space
Put on your pain and took your penalty--a’more
He’s love epitomized and the remedy
He’s Jesus.
