praying

life, break in me whatever needs to be broken.
fix my hope of ever being fixed.
use me. draw every ounce of creativity out of me.
help me, live a radically unique life, forever forging a never-before-trodden path in the forest.
show me how to love more deeply than i ever thought possible.
whatever i am still turning away from, keep shoving in my face.
whatever i am still at war with, help me soften towards, relax into, fully embrace.
where my heart is still closed, show me a way to open it without violence.
where i am still holding on, help me let go.
give me challenges & struggles and seemingly insurmountable obstacles, if that will bring an even deeper humility and trust in the intelligence of life.
help me laugh at my own seriousness.
allow me to find the humour in the dark places.
show me a profound sense of rest in the midst of the storm.
don’t spare me from the truth.
ever.
let gratitude by my guide.
let forgiveness be my mantra.
let this moment be a constant companion.
let me see your face in every face.
let me feel your warm presence in my own presence.
hold me when i stumble.
breathe me when i cannot breathe.
let me die living, not live dying.
AMEN.

darkness

I took a little journey to the unknown,
And I come back changed. I can feel it in my bones.
I fucked with forces that our eyes can’t see.
Now the darkness got a hold on me.
Oh, the darkness got a hold on me.

How long, baby, have I been away?
Oh, it feels like ages though you say it’s only days.
There ain’t language for the things I’ve seen.
And the truth is stranger than my own worst dreams.
The truth is stranger than all my dreams.
Oh, the darkness got a hold on me.

I have seen what the darkness does.
Say goodbye to who I was.
I ain’t never been away so long.
Don’t look back them days are gone.
Follow me into the endless night.
I can bring your fears to life.
Show me yours and I’ll show you mine.
Meet me in the woods tonight.

Follow me into the endless night.

Show me yours and I’ll show you mine.
Meet me in the woods tonight.
