God doesn't live in a castle in the sky
Nor is he one power, holy and divine
He takes on different forms
Like caterpillars that morph
Into different-colored butterflies
He lives among us, not the skies
Existing in every religion
Taking on different definitions,
Isn't it beautiful? Isn't it lovely
That he shares himself with everybody?
Not just one group in the human race
If he did that, many wouldn't know his face
When they cross the bridge
To the afterlife.
Thoughts?
i do not believe in god
i haven’t for about as long
as i’ve known the easter bunny
isn’t real

still, i woke up this morning
i sat with my family
looked through easter baskets
and watched the catholic mass on tv

it is not important for me
to impose my beliefs
on my younger siblings
they’ll figure things out in their own time

still, i can’t help but wonder
why our parents believe
stories of an all-powerful god
over tales of a magical bunny

why they think letting us know
and believe in santa
or the easter bunny
is only for childhood

but we should always believe
in the man in the sky
who we can’t see, but for some reason
loves us

as far as i can tell,
it’s just another tall tale
and that’s not me telling you you’re wrong
only that i’m not sure you’re right

For Some It Seems Perception ... LEANS ...  
Toward THOSE Dreams of ... " FANTASIES " ...  

But TRAGICALLY The CATASTROPHE ...  
Is Perception ISN'T Better Than ... REALITY ... !!!
In FACT Thoughts Like These NEED Some CLARITY ... !!!  
  
Perceptive Brains NEED To ... TAKE THE STRAIN ... !!!!!  
And DEAL With The REAL Rather Than Leave The Keel ...  
UneVenLY Balanced And ... PAINFULLY Challenged ... !!!  
  
By This ... What I Mean ...  
IS ... " Living The Dream " ...  
AIN'T ALL That It ... " SEEMS " ...  
  
Sometimes Within Life You HAVE To FACE Trials ...  
That REALLY ... AREN'T That Nice ... !!!!!  
  
NO TIME For DENIAL Or ... " Jeremy Kyle " ... !!!!!!!!!!!!  
THAT Line ... Makes Me Smile ... !!!  
  
What's Up With THAT SHOW ... ?!?  
Perception FULL BLOWN WITHOUT The ... " Green Mile " ...  
  
NOBODY Can Know Another Mans' WOES ... !!!  
Perception Is Something ... Reality BLOWS ... !!!!  
  
When Comfort Zones Go And FALSEHOODS Unfold ..................  
Perceptions of People ... Make Some Turn To EVIL ... !!!  
  
"He ain't no bad guy, he don't know the game !  
We'll make him feel like, he's sweeter than cane !"  
  
See ... " Kindness For Weakness " ...  
Can Leave People ... TEETHLESS ... !!!
  
It's ALL A Deception This FAITH in ... " Perception " ...  
  
"He's got to sell drugs, just look at his mug,  
and look at his hair, it makes me feel scared !"  
  
See Perception's A LAIR Where Cats Should BEWARE ... !!!  
Cos' Reality BITES Just Like Those ... BED MITES ... !!!  
  
Affecting Your Sleep When Thoughts Start To ... "creep" ...  
INTO YOUR CONSCIENCE Because of PURE NONSENSE ... !!?!!  
  
Like ACTS of Deceit That Leads Some To ... "CHEAT" ...  
And Treat Their Beliefs Like Leaves Blown On Streets ...  
  
THROWN Here And There In FACT ... EVERYWHERE ...  
As If What They KNOW Just ... CANNOT Be So ... !?!  
  
Now THAT DON'T Add Up ... Perception And TRUST ...  
TRUST What You KNOW ... NOT What Is On SHOW ... !!!!!  
  
THE HYPE's Been DEFINED ...  
PERCEIVE ... What You Like ... !!!  
  
I Deal In What's FACT NOT Fantasy Acts ... !!!!!  
  
It Seems That Most Minds PERCEIVE What They Like ...  
Rather Than Walk The Path Where DARK Finds The Light ... !!!  
  
Perception Will ALWAYS PREVAIL In These Types ...  
Who Just CANNOT Face ... The Darkest of Times ... !!!!!  
  
Because They THEN SEE What REALITY Feeds ... !!!!!  
SEEDS And SEAMS That Sometimes Seem ...  
As If THE DREAM ... AIN'T Quite So Clean ... !!!!!  
  
But Truth Be Told As Time ... U N F O L D S . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  
  
It Is Just What It ... NEEDS To Be ... !!!!!  
FILLED With ... Vagaries of Scenes ...  
  
Scenes of MORE Than ... PETTY Wars ...  
Scenes of PEACE ... And YES BEAUTY ...  
And EVEN Scenes of .... UNITY ....  
  
Which ALL EMBRACE ... " REALITY " ... !!!  
  
But Reality's SEAMS AREN'T ALL Like These ... !!!  
It's Balance and TRUTH That ... In MY VIEW ...  
SHOULD Be USED ... To School The Confused ... !!!!!  
  
Cos There Are A Few Who'd Rather CHOOSE ...  
Perception OVER ... What Is TRUE ... ?!?  
  
So ....
Is Perception BETTER Than ... " Reality " ...  
These Days I Can SEE ...
How To Some It Can Seem That It May Just Be ... ?!?  
  
I Guess That's The LESSON That Leaves MANY STRESSING ...  
The Ideas of INCEPTION ... That Minds Be ACCEPTING ...  
  
So Here's My LAST QUESTION ...  
Is It All A Deception That's NEEDING CORRECTION ... ?!?  
  
Or NOW An ... INFECTION ...  
That NEEDS To STOP Spreading ...  
Peoples' ... " CONCEPTIONS " ...  
  
Of Life Through ...  
  
..... " Perception " ......
What You Perceive May Indeed ... Deceive ...
When someone says that religion
is fake - or even stupid

just remember
that you're not hurting anyone

For even atheists
believe
in not believing

Well you know whats going on-
You know yet you still sit there and
wait-

So while at it give life a thought-

not yours but the kids

-why even are we doing it?

It's survival

Such a phenomenon- stars
falling off the sky stars- a once in a life time event occurs
and I stare-
what more to do when face to face with the tragic demise your own fate to just stand and stare hopeless
quite poetic. Ain't it?
So when watching, This star fall-
watch the dreams of children perish,
you and I and they all know.
So stare- and stare hard
for we die once the view goes dark
and curtains close-
fade to black-
                                        The End.
You only live once don't ya?
Xella Feb 5
Street lights and open oceans,
quite the same to me.

If you plan to find yourself
meet me where your eyes leer.

Between the shadows and light,
stands the might that is your mind.

You're stronger than you think.
You say you're drowning, but
Look! your head is afloat.

Live through the blinding engulfing monster-
do not forget the feeling of cool air in the back of your throat.

I get lost in pleasure
The child playing tag
Running and laughing
I beg to make it last

A place in my dreams
Where I was once free
Wet behind the ears
Innocent and green

Why'd I need to know
Why'd I need to learn
Eyes are watching us
Sin and we will burn

Heavy on our hearts
Parasites in our brains
The lies we were tough
We'll never be the same

Oh please come back
Innocence of youth
Storm clouds of lies
Blinding the truth

Tell not the children
Santa Clause tales
Pretending leaves us
Believing in Hell

Running from devils
Demons inside
Please take it back
All of those lies

Return our innocence
The care free happy child
Let us go outside and play
Let us love ourselves  
These last few miles

These reflecting pearls, the bane of my existence-
Oh so blind to the left and right of squiggly lines like
The pounding of a fly on eardrums- my mind they scour
Flies beating round the hole in my head,
equivalent to the way they fall fate to windows-
Window sills their life long bed-
My windows to the world seem to fall short- failing
Even now in writing this down-
The buzzing bees build their home above my mind and below my throat.
