hallelujah
you were an angel in the shape
of my mom

when i fell down
you'd be there to holding me up

spreading your wings as you go

ow hallelujah
you were faithful in so many shades
and forms

whenever i'd drown
you'd be there to lift me up

as we both wanted to spread our wings

and


go

this is lyrics originally written by ed sheeran in a song called supermarket flower and i felt inspired to change it up a bit

It's payday
Hallelujah
Take a deep breath
Hallelujah
I'm working
Hallelujah
I'm happy
Hallelujah
With sadness
Hallelujah hallelujah

I'm living
Hallelujah
I'm giving
Hallelujah
And taking
Hallelujah
And baking
What I do, ...yeah
But breaking right on through ya

It's just
What you do, yeah
You're space
You are You, Jah
You're grace
Moving through

Not judge,
But taboo

Loving all
Who love you

(And those who don't too)

Thanks. Pretty cool.

And,

Although I don't hear
With this rusty ear
I know you are there
I'm vaguely aware

And the weekend is close
It has almost arrived
I will be less morose
I will open my eyes

Hallelujah hallelujah

Going back to the Hebrew, "Hallelujah" means "hey you... Praise the Maker"

In today's poem, that is not a command to you, the reader, but a reminder to me, the writer.

It's Thursday
If it were Wednesday
It would be the same
again, you are not here
So,
     I think to call someone else
and have regrettable sex
and forget you for a night
but I don't
I'm tired of it
I'll be alone
So,
I think I'll sit by myself
drink
    and talk to the gods
they don't exist
but they are nearer than you

Go out and change the world;
Only you can change you. Show
Others Kindness and end the hate.
Differences makes us unique.

Together is the way
Only way we can make this world

Better.
Everyone has their own beliefs, opinions, views

And we can agree to disagree--that's okay.
Life will be alright if we all got along.
I know it sucks and hard sometimes-everyone struggles-it
Varies-person to person, but we'll be okay.
Each day is a new day-So live it like it's the last.

(Happiness happens to when you worry
About you not what others might be doing. Your
Life is yours not others--
Live it your way and forget the rest, but give respect-
Everybody has a right to
Live their own life the way they want.
Understanding all beliefs are out there is okay not
Just your's- No one is perfect, but together-maybe
All of us- can end this
Hate in this world.)

Written in a few minutes of picking the title from an Andy Grammer song. We are all in this together. Another 2 part poem.

Well, baby, I've been here before,
As Jonathan snuck out my door.
You know, I never meant to screw ya.

I loved him good and I loved him well,
There's nothing more that I have to tell.
He's nothing like my brother, hallelujah!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah.

Draped in robes
the same color
as the blood
that covered
the Cross.
It granted forgiveness-
a postmortem paradise.

You claim the authority,
given by the symbol 'round your neck,
to banish those who oppose,
and I oppose,
to the fires below
for eternity.

You take the symbol
of sacrifice and everlasting love
and you bend it at the ends;
accepting oppression,
perverting Purity.

"He's a faggot!
                         She's a whore!"
Grab a mirror and remember:
the Devil was the
most Beautiful of all.

You've replaced the Father with
The Judge,
The Son with
The Priest,
and the Holy Spirit with
the Wicked Soul.

You pay your bills with my sin,
my prayers,
my Holy Salvation.

You speak in tongues-
the words like vultures,
they circle above me
and wait until I give in-
I've been consumed.

So condemn me to Hell,
Your Heaven is no paradise
for me.

Sometimes..
The best way to find Gods will,
   is to
remember what He brought you through

   in the adventure He bought for you.

Who knew?! That Jesus still loves you! through and through!
Before He even created you, Jesus knew what He would have to do to get a hold of you.

Jesus hung from nails on a cross because I can't keep my heart straight and yet Jesus still cleans up my mess.

Transcending the barriers of language,
is a powerful word of… utmost praise;
it’s a personal shout of recognition,
that Jehovah most be honored this day!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Now hear the World, exclaim in unison.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
His majesty is the final conclusion,

that we’ll all reach at the Bema Seat.
Knees will bow and tongues will confess,
that Christ is the Lamb and our Lord;
under His reign and rule, all acquiesce

and attest with more shouts of praise.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
By the grace of His Spirit, we cry out:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

"The one word of praise that goes beyond all language barriers to make the whole world praise God with one voice in unison is 'Hallelujah!,' may we train our soul and command it to praise the Lord often in this universal earthly language that transcends time and space to reach heaven and reverberate in heaven to bring glory, honor and praise to our God and joy towards us from Him in response." —Abraham Israel

I Thought
I Lost A "Good Woman"
That trauma caused my pulse
to lay flat on a gurney
Ambulance Sirens of Dire Emergency
Rang loud in my eardrums
On my way to
The Heartbreak
Came to find out
It was a
FALSE ALARM
Hallelujah!!
I'm Alive
But will not ever allow
myself to be swindled again
It is hazardous to my health
Amen!

Played a lot of roles in life , but never played the victim :)
