A fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi. (In front of you, a precipice. Behind you, wolves.)

In honor of National Poetry Month, I've been doing a daily poem. Today it's more of a song in answer to a currently popular song (the name of which I won't mention). This is my answer to that song. It's not as angry as it sounds...;o)

You pray to a god you don't believe in
And then you expect that plan to fly

You're lonely and your heart is restless
But you don't even think to try.

You dare God to make it all better
When you bleed and the love is gone

And you howl that life is a lock-out
But you continue to do what is wrong.

Raise your eyes and look beyond you
Find meaning in something new

For when life gets dark and painful
God's a friend and a savior true.

Pull your head out of the gutter
Fix your mind on a paradigm shift

Look up instead of always downward
Do what you must to mend the rift

For life is a test and a duck-shoot
You can win big or desperately fail

It's mostly in how you look at it
Whether you sink in dejection or sail.



  1. Thanks! I love your stuff too! Your blog's on my favorites.

  2. Yikes! This hit me physically in the head and I had to go lie down and have a beer.

    No really, you got me where I live.

    Gorgeous blog. Wish I knew how to do that.

  3. Is that a good thing?

    You can pick my brain about the little I know about blog stuff.
