Somewhere, sleeping on rocks
Scarred from the scraping of feet

Bare against the Earth's surface
Unprotected, the prey of defeat...

Somewhere, shaking from starvation
Limbs bloated and swollen in pain
Twisted stomach churning, moaning
Cries through the night in vain...

Somewhere, sworn to constant battle
Under the debris of empty shells
Trying to hide the red of blood
Trying to forget the way death smells...

Somewhere, sugar coated dreams
Fill the heads of an innocent child
Looking out on an imperfect world
Striving to make sense of life in this wild.

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.
