::imaginative introspection::

Imagine that all life is an illusion. All that exists is this moment. No past, no future, each memory, every plan, a part of the illusion. Life, in a photograph.

Do you like the image of yourself?

OH, shame.

I drank a beer with Jesus,
Asked him how I'd change the world,
Asked him how he plans on waking up
These men who hide behind their fear
Claiming Religion and 'tradition',
While clinging to their own lies,
As they watch one of my sisters
Buried far before her time.

I drank a beer with Jesus.
Asked him to hold my hand,
Asked him to help me stand,
As I spoke about the danger of ignorance
To a room of apathetic men.

I spoke of science, of medicine, of faith, I argued for the ethics, and reminded them of their own mistakes.

I drank a beer with Jesus.
He didn't have the answers,
Just looked at me and sighed.

I don't plan in giving up,
So hear my battle cry.

  1. I hope Jesus has the answers. I hope we are just deaf. I have Jury Duty next week, and I am relating through this post. Luckily, I am an alternate, and best case scenario....will not have to deliberate.
