Turn Up

When the pressure gets too much
You reach for the the bottle,
Swirl a mysterious liquid
Turn it up and knock it back...
It may burn for a little
But then the pain is gone
And you forget what brought you here.
Lose yourself piece by piece
Burned away by by your release.
The world gets blurry,
Your eyes turn dark
Nothing is stationary,
Even if time stands still...
But just outside your fantasy,
On the other side of the bottle
The world is still crystal clear
Time ticking on without delay
And none of your problems have gone away.
Wake up, put the bottle down,
Suffer for a moment if you must--
Take a knee, relax a minute and wait,
Life is only seconds away,
Truth only a minute behind--
So wear yourself out swimming
Instead of letting yourself drown.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
